Now, with the release schedules for 1.6 and 2.0
what is the status of distutils?

Which version will be included in 1.6 (do we care
about that)?.
Which version in 2.0? Probably 1.0, whatever that means...

Will bdist_wininst be part of these?
Has anyone heard about anyone using it?

bdist_wininst has one known bug (the user
running the installer will receive error messages
if zero-length files are included in the distribution).

I have a fix for this bug, and also started a larger
rewrite of the installer, but this is not yet finished.
