I don't think it is needed to pin them here.  They don't influence the
run-time behaviour and don't conflict with something else.  (Well, setuptools
could have influence with entry points).

Minimal versions are handy.  Require at least setuptools 0.6c11 to prevent
subversion 1.6 related errors.  (Technical note: distribute has no problem
with such a setuptools minimal dependency: it will just say "yep, that's me"
in the places that matter).
