Not objections, exactly, but note that...
* The module/package support is already in distutils on the CVS HEAD, so
there's nothing to do there.
* These kinds of behavioral change/upgrades seem unlikely to be approved
for 2.3.5, since the previous behavior was documented as such and therefore
not a "bug".
