Ideally, if you could push this to hg.python.org/distutils2 (overwriting the existing stuff).
Okay, done. I've overwritten existing files and added new ones, only removing/renaming things like index -> pypi and mkcfg -> create. I haven't touched existing code e.g. the top-level test scripts or the _backport directory. The added test_distutils2.py is what I used to run the tests.
