Great to see this go ahead Stéphane!

A few questions:

a) I would prefer to have a ".setup" directory name instead of "setup".  Is this viable?
b) I also couldn't find the file in the  acsone/account-financial-reporting repo. Did i miss something?
c) How will the "setup" directory be kept up to date? An additional task for the OCA bot?




Dear contributors,
Following this blog post [1] about packaging and installation of OCA addons, I would like to take two next steps:
1. add the files to all OCA repositories
Step 1. consists in adding an unobtrusive setup directory in each repository. I plan to do this with a mass commit using setuptools-odoo-makedefault [2]. 
An example of such an autogenerated setup directory can be found in branch [3].
After that, we will have the possibility to manually fine-tune the for specific refinements (such as having more precise version dependencies or grouping some glue autoinstallable modules in the same package as their main module). 
After these steps are done, I will prototype a mechanism to upload the wheels to pypi.
Do you agree?
