A wheel is a ZIP-format archive with a specially formatted filename and the
`.whl` extension.  It is designed to contain all the files for a PEP 376
compatible install in a way that is very close to the on-disk format.
The wheel project provides a `bdist_wheel` command for setuptools.  Wheel
files can be installed with `pip`.
This is the Python 3 compatible package.
