I have put a few patches up on the SourceForge patch manager.

The first patch prunes CVS files and directories from source distributions.
(Making a source distribution of the Distutils was failing because it kept
putting 'misc/CVS' into MANIFEST. Of course, this wouldn't effect somebody
who wasn't using the CVS Distutils.)

The second patch fixes a problem that you could not build source
distributions for packages that use the old-style way of specifying extensions.

The third patch is for the examples directory. It updates the pil and xml
setup scripts to use new-style extensions and fixes a bug in the mxDateTime
setup script (which uses new-style extensions but did not import the
Extension class.)
