[Distutils] Numeric-16.0 problem

I guess this error is caused by Numeric-16.0 taking the distutils version string
list a bit too seriously. The setup.py script wants to do
if vs[0] < 1 and vs[1] < 9:
    raise SystemExit, "Please see README: Distutils-0.9 or later required."

is there a correct way to get this kind of version number?

C:\Python\devel\Numeric-16.0>python setup.py build
Traceback (innermost last):
  File "setup.py", line 14, in ?
    vs = map(string.atoi, string.split(v, '.'))
  File "<built-in>", line 2, in map
ValueError: invalid literal for atoi(): 2pre
