Also, if this works just fine, wouldn't it make sense to make Distribute the default for virtualenv at some point?
In my opinion, yes.
FWIW you can also set VIRTUALENV_USE_DISTRIBUTE=1 in your environment. Or, in the latest version of virtualenv I think it's just VIRTUALENV_DISTRIBUTE. You can also set it in a config file now; I forget the details but it's explained in the virtualenv docs.
