Apologies to Bastian Kleineidam, I'm not on the list so this isn't a 
direct reply to your email!

I'm using the cvs version "setuptools", as it was suggested in an email on 
this list:


as I wanted my setup.py to work under Python-2.3.

Are the distutils from Python-2.4 likely to work if I transplant it into 
my own program??
