[Distutils] Problems with cli.exe

I've found a bug with cli.exe and a missing feature.
The bug is that arguments containing embedded spaces aren't handled
For example, suppose you have foo-script.py and a copy of cli.exe
If you call foo.exe with a single argument, like this:
foo "a b"
then foo-script.py will be called with 2 arguments, "a", and "b",
rather than a single argument, "a b".
The missing feature is that options on the #! line aren't honored. It
would be nice if, for example, a script beginning like:
would run Python in optimized mode.
I'd be happy to take a crack at fixing the bug and adding the
feature. Where is the source?
I assume that this also applies to gui.exe.
BTW, Shouldn't the setuptools project be moved out of sandbox and be
made a proper svn project with it's own trunk, branches, and tags?
