[Distutils] Moving distutils minimum required version to 2.3

I've checked distutils into the python sandbox for a major
chunk of refactoring, including killing distutils.log and 
distutils.fancy_getopt. I plan to upgrade the minimum 
required version of distutils to 2.3 - I will be using 
the logging and optparse modules from the stdlib. This 
means that the version of distutils included in 2.4 will
be the last version guaranteed to work on 2.1 and 2.2 -- 
but I seriously question whether anyone is ever going to
be making standalone distutils distributions again.

If you know of any problems with this, please let me
