You could look at one of my packages (i.e. "dm.*", e.g. "dm.pdb").

Essentially, I have the data files besides the Python sources
and let "setuptools" determine the relevant files
(sources and data) as those managed via a source code
control system (=SCCS). For the latter to work, your Python
must have installed the integration module for your SCCS.
