I'm all for a Python-only approach. As for avoiding YASP, oye, tell me about it. We have sooo many for our build environment, it's just a mess. I just wanted to make sure people didn't take away the message "there is no free find replacment for Win32".

Perry, Actually, I was already aware of that, and the MKS Toolkit as well (which includes a non-free version of find). However, these are both third-party addons, even if one is free. Since the use of find in this case is quite simple, I think implementing a "manifest" command in distutils would be worth the 15-20 lines of code it would take. I'd hate for us to recommend users to go install YASP ("yet another software package") just to be able to get a list of files and directories!
