Ummm, I'm confused. Is this "info needed to build/install the package",
or "info needed to run the software"? Those are two very different
kinds of configuration info. The Distutils could probably do something
in both areas, but I don't think the two should be confused. Eg. about
all we can do for run-time configuration is promote a standard place for
Python applications to install and find such config data, whereas we can
specify everything about build-time config data. So which are you
talking about here?
