Originally reported by: jaraco (Bitbucket: jaraco, GitHub: jaraco)

Following the release of 3.0, it quickly became apparent that the use of the deprecated Features was still widespread. It also became apparent that many users automatically update Setuptools, even to backward-incompatible versions.

In order to quickly address the failures, jaraco pulled Setuptools 3.x from PyPI and pinned the bootstrap script to 2.2.

A few things need to happen, so here is the first step. Features will be restored and a new 3.1 release will be made. At that time, 3.0 will also be re-released (for posterity). This action will re-open #65. Additionally, #159 will attempt to address better communication of the upcoming removal. The Feature functionality will be kept in the code base for some time. In light of the new understanding of usage of this functionality, the team will consider keeping the functionality altogether.
