@ngoldbaum: I guess it depends on how you define "work" :-). E.g. if you setup_requires numpy and numpy isn't installed, then your setup.py will install numpy... but it'll ignore the wheels and insist on building it by hand, will therefore probably give you a slow non-BLAS build, and then it'll install this slow build in such a way that it can't be correctly uninstalled or upgraded (i.e., it just corrupted your virtualenv)
