One thing that no one has mentioned in this thread is the "command-packages"
support I added to distutils for Python 2.4. I think this supports Bob's use
What's needed is to install a Python package containing the new commands
somewhere on the search path (preferably in .../site-packages). Then edit
the Python installations distutils config file (bet you didn't know about
that!) to include
The new commands will be available for all setup.py scripts.
This is a documented feature; you can read more about it at
