Great -- thanks!

Unfortunately, this definitely counts as new functionality, so it'll
have to wait until post-Python 2.0.  I'm not sure if we're talking about
Distutils 1.0.2 or 1.1, but definitely not 1.0.1.

Could you submit your patch to the SourceForce patch manager so it
doesn't get lost?  Thanks.  Go to:


(after logging in, of course, if you have a SourceForge user ID).
