When creating a source distribution via 'python3 setup.py sdist', the
VERSION and PACKAGE.rst files aren't bundled by default. Create a
MANIFEST.in file that instructs the build tools to include these so that
installation from source dists won't fail.

(This invocation is required by 'tox', as well as by the tooling needed
to upload packages to PyPI.)

I was about to propose mypy.ini to be included here, but given
that it's merged into setup.cfg later in this series:

Note to self (and to you) when generating the sdist, I get:

   ...
   package init file 'qemu/__init__.py' not found (or not a regular file)
   package init file 'dist/__init__.py' not found (or not a regular file)
   ...

Which may not be too harmful, but deserves investigation.

I think this one is fine, it's just a consequence of PEP420.

This is kinda weird, but it only happens if you run sdist a *second* 
time, and it has created a dist/ folder. It shouldn't be trying to 
package its own dist folder ... !

After a 60 second look I don't know how to rectify this behavior, I will 
look into it.

fwiw clean run vs re-run:

at the very least, it doesn't look like it does anything actively 
harmful, but it seems to want to find sources in the dist, so I should 
steer it towards exclusively the qemu/ folder.

Thanks for this, Cleber!
