> Why do we keep setuptools?

I agree; would be good to remove it if possible.

There are many packages that fail to build without Setuptools being present or --use-pep517 indicated. It would be nice if pip could make --use-pep517 the default, update that in Python, and then remove Setuptools. I would expect that approach will cause a great deal less turmoil in the ecosystem.
