REUSE doesn't work without `python-setuptools` because REUSE requires `pkg_resources` module. See <>.

To reproduce:

1. Install `reuse` package.
2. Remove `python-setuptools` package (which is not in dependency graph for `reuse` package---see `pactree reuse` command output).
3. Run `reuse` command.
This task depends upon
