[Distutils] build_py support from setuptools

I'd like to merge the build_py improvements from setuptools into the distutils 
build_py command.  This would add:

- an easy way to install additional data files into a package

- the ability to provide both individual modules and packages at the same time

This would affect Python 2.3.5 and 2.4.  I'll modify setuptools to only "take 
over" the build_py command if it needs to.

Any objections?
