We said during the summit at Pycon that we wanted this feature in Distutils, (Guido said so)
"We" in this context denotes the people at the summit. Please remember that people who weren't there still have an opinion - and it may well differ. I'm not saying that it *does* differ, just that the view of the summit should not be viewed as conclusive (unless the way Python is developed is very different from how I understand it).
Sorry I didn't mean it this way. The summit was just the kickoff for this PEP, but with the strong desire to have a standard + some API for it.
Also, notice that I put in "We" also the people that answered the survey I did before the summit. (http://tarekziade.wordpress.com/2009/03/26/packaging-survey-first-results/)
I'll make other fixes in the PEP with the feedback you gave, thanks
