You can configure it to do so already. Making distutils automatically figure out
that this is desired and safe is probably more magic than it's worth.
Use a section in your pydistutils.cfg file like this:
"I have come to believe that the whole world is an enigma, a harmless enigma
that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had
an underlying truth."
