In PEP 517, package building backends are not loaded from the source of the
package being built. This prevents accidentally shadowing your build system,
but some packages, like build tools, want to act as their own backend.

%{pypi_name} is a shim to work around this, so that a source tree can be built
by itself.

Oh: intreehooks is largely obsolete now, as PEP 517 gained a standard mechanism (backend-path) which can achieve the same result without an external package.
