Thanks very much for the information, I will take a look at the importlib-metadata project.
After looking into it further, It seems like many, perhaps all, of the functions in PEP 376 were implemented in distlib:
Aye, that's the most comprehensive toolkit for packaging related tasks, since it covers many of the never-actually-standardised pieces that were defined by the distutils and setuptools implementations.
