I'll throw this out there.. why is it going to have a different name on python2 than on python3?

IOW, the task to do is:
1/ copy packaging and all its stdlib dependencies in a standalone project 2/ rename packaging to distutils2 3/ make it work under older 2.x and 3.x (2.x would be the priority) <==== 4/ release it, promote its usage 5/ consolidate the API with the feedback received
I realize it's by far the less interesting task to do in packaging, but it's by far one of the most important
Okay, I had a bit of spare time today, and here's as far as I've got:
Step 1 - done. Step 2 - done. Step 3 - On Python 2.6 most of the tests pass:
Ran 322 tests in 12.148s
FAILED (failures=3, errors=4, skipped=39)
See the detailed test results (for Linux) at https://gist.github.com/1152791
The code is at https://bitbucket.org/vinay.sajip/du2/
stdlib dependency code is either moved to util.py or test/support.py as appropriate. You need to test in a virtualenv with unittest2 installed. No work has been done on packaging the project.
I'm not sure if I'll have much more time to spend on this, but it's there in case someone else can look at the remaining test failures, plus Steps 4 and 5; hopefully I've broken the back of it :-)
