I don't have time to review this before 1.6a2 goes out, but there will
be a third alpha (at least) and some betas. I hope others will review
parts of your patch!
One concern: Greg Ward is trying to keep distutils compatible with
Python 1.5.1. So those files should not be touched.
I'm not sure if there are similar concerns elsewhere...
