Default dev-python/setuptools as RDEPEND

Just a quick note here in case you work on Python packages.
Recently repoman started warning that setuptools may be suspicious as an
RDEPEND.


A lot of Python packages use another namespace that setuptools provides,
'pkg_resources', for plugin systems so it may not appear obvious that
setuptools is an RDEPEND.


I've updated the Python Developer's Guide[1] with info on how you can
easily determine if it's an RDEPEND or not.

Why not remove the check from repoman, if it is a false positive in many
cases?
