#7 setup: Remove requirement "wheel".

Merged
heck merged 1 commits from htgoebel/pEpPythonAdapter:remove-requirement-wheel into Release_2.1 5 months ago

"wheel" is not required for building, but only for creating the
distribution package in ".whl" format. The package builds fine into a
bdist archive without "wheel".

If packaging wants a .whl package, "wheel" ought to be installed in the
packaging environment. Imagine one wants to package a conda/anaconda package
or an .deb or .rpm. In these cases the respective build tools would be installed
in the packaging environment, too, and not specified in setup.cfg.

This shoule be forward-ported to master.
