This particular code path was vetoed from getting thrown out last time I
worked in that area since it would break long-standing expectations
w.r.t. local package archoves that have no setup.ini or even *.hint.

In a properly maintained mirror or local archive it is a mis-feature.  I
was told not everyone wants to have to do the extra steps of doing that
maintenance.  At least if we detect what should be a proper package repo
we don't additionally look at all the files anymore.
