The official Python documentation[1] references the Python Packaging
Guide[2] which recommends using setuptools instead of distutils.

Also note from setup.py[1]

  # FIXME: setuptools breaks the --manifest-only option to setup.py and
  # doesn't seem to generate a MANIFEST file. Since I'm not familiar with
  # the way setuptools handles the files to include I'm commenting this
  # for now -- Ralf Schlatterbeck
