this fix was done to avoid generating broken MANIFEST file with sdist.

IIUC your problem is more about avoiding generating a MANIFEST file at *all* via sdist, so we should add a --no-manifest option to the sdist command.

This can be added today in Mercurial file as well so you don't have the problem with 2.7. I can contribute this change if you want.
