4suite's latest alpha provides an interesting approach--though I won't 
come right out and vouch for it because I'm trying to spec an RPM but 
it doesn't have the --record option--where they allow for sub-packages.  
This allows one to operate on only certain sub-packages for building, 
installing, etc.  Although PackageManager provides for this, it 
constitutes as a fork of the mainstream distutils and as such there 
will be differences or even missing features (--record).

Anyway, seeing how it operates is beneficial for both discussion and 
potential py2.5 inclusion...

take care,
