I'm trying to figure out how I can make distutils support installation of scripts to more than one directory, e.g. both <prefix>/bin/ and <prefix>/sbin/.
I've found an open bug on this in the Python project on SourceForge, but it's now over a year since the person that bug is assigned to said that he would "look at this".
I started by looking through the documentation, but could not find any info on how to extend distutils. Hence, I had a look at how distutils is currently implemented, but I'm still not sure how one is meant to *properly* extend the "install*" feature set.
Have anyone done this particular extension already? If not, are there any guidelines on how such an extension ought to be done?
