Fix develop install for setuptools >= 19.4

Starting from setuptools 19.4, more concrete from the following commit:

setuptools sorts namespaced packages .__path__ to be in sync with sys.path .
That however breaks for wendelin.core used from in-tree or installed in
development mode, because we are doing tricks in top-level import redirector
(see e870781d "Top-level in-tree import redirector"):

    (z+numpy.v2)kirr@teco:~/tmp/trashme/wendelin.core$ python -c 'import wendelin'

    ValueError: '/home/kirr/tmp/trashme' is not in list

Here added /home/kirr/tmp/trashme/wendelin.core to .__path__ and
setuptools' _handle_ns() wants to order that dir's parent in correspondence
with sys.path, but parent path is not there - oops.

We can workaround the problem, by first not initializing .__path__ and letting


fully handle and initialize it, and only after it is done we make the
correction for wendelin modules located not under .../wendelin.core/wendelin/
but under .../wendelin.core/ .

Importing was tested to work with the fix with both setuptools 20.6.7 and older
setuptools 17.1.1, i.e. here we should not be breaking backward compatibility.
