Well, it's broken in a couple ways.  One is that a setuptools egg for 
py2.2 doesn't exist.

But anyway, I've attached a patch that fixes two problems I've 
encountered in ez_setup.py -- distutils.log, and tempfile.mkdtemp (doing 
crude clones of both).  I don't know what issues setuptools itself might 
still have.  This doesn't make it functional, but I guess it's closer.
