(More ideas than I have time to absorb at the moment snipped.)


I think you need to raise this on the distutils sig as well.  Thats'  
where setuptools is discussed and much of what you describe is  
addressed to some degree by setuptools.

It is still my opinion that the distutils-sig and catalog-sig should  
be combined.
