Hi all --

I've just put together a new code snapshot.  This fixes all the little
bugs that have dribbled in over the last week or so, and also adds Rene
Liebscher's refactoring of the file-list-generation code from sdist.py
to a new class in a new module (FileList, in filelist.py -- renamed from
Template in Rene's patch).

Please give it a whirl -- this code will most likely become Distutils
0.9.1 to get the bug fixes out there fairly quickly (ie. without adding
Rene's latest changes to various Windows compiler classes -- that can
wait for 0.9.2).

Oh yeah, it's at
