I don't think anything's happened with it. Before Python 2.5, I plan to go 
through distutils and remove a bunch of things that are now part of the 
stdlib - for instance, making distutils use logging and optparse, rather than 
it's own log and fancy_getopt modules.

If you wanted to try writing down exactly what you'd like to see from a 
newer Extension object in distutils, that would be a good start...
