Fantastic, thank you very much!

Yes, please.  I'll take care of updating the release notes for 0.6c2.

By the way, just for future reference, you don't need to branch the entire 
sandbox to work on a setuptools branch.  Notice, for example, that the 
setuptools-0.6 branch is just a copy of the sandbox/setuptools 
directory.  This is in fact the standard way to do branches and tags in the 
Python sandbox (i.e., just branch or tag the individual project, not the 
entire sandbox).
