It is useful to be able to run a package without installing it for
development and testing.

Right. AFAIK there's no way to do that with Distutils (yet).

That is the purpose (IIUC) for the ‘develop’ command in Setuptools: to
make the package available for Python in situ.

emesene uses distutils and you can run it without installing it. Maybe it doesn't use it very well though...
