[TIP] Tox with protobuf package

tox just uses pip, for this to work there needs to be a way to get pip to do
it, AFAICT the protobuf PyPI package is just broken in this regard.

IMHO the PyPI package shouldn't contain non-Python things (that probably
means "be the python/ directory"). This appears to be the way that debuntu
does it to make protobuf installable.

What I'd do is just set up a PyPI mirror that has custom packages :) (and
file a bug report, of course)
