[PATCH] Add Paste Deploy support to the WSGI branch

Attached is a patch (against the sandbox/wsgi branch) that implements a Paste Deploy entry point for trac. Using the sample deployment file (in the patch in docs/sample_deploy.ini) you can do:
paster serve docs/sample_deploy.ini
To get a working server. The configuration in that file just points to the Trac project directory, it doesn't put any of Trac's configuration in that file. The server in the sample is WSGIUtils, but any server can be used (e.g., flup's FastCGI or SCGI servers). The sample file also wraps the app in paste.lint, which checks for WSGI compliance (you wouldn't use this normally, but for testing and development it is useful).
This also changes setup.py to use setuptools, because that is needed for entry points. Strictly speaking this would not be necessary (you can just put
paste.app_factory = trac.web.main:paste_app_factory in the deployment configuration instead of
use = egg:Trac). But, eh. I'm a little surprised Trac isn't using setuptools already. Just changing the import from distutils.core to setuptools seems to work well enough for me.
Also two bugs are fixed; one when subdirectories of parent_dir are not loadable, and one for parent_dirs itself.
I haven't implemented env_paths in this patch — it would probably mean collecting all the configuration variables and parsing them a bit (but would certainly be doable). I'm not sure what the threadsafety of Trac is, but if dispatch_request could be entered from multiple threads with different
trac.env_path values and work that way, other dispatchers (like
Paste#urlmap) could be used in addition to env_paths. It looks like Trac is probably already ready to be used like this (if it doesn't use globals to communicate configuration).
