[Distutils] setuptools tracker "needpatch" keyword, tests, etc.

Hello all.  I had some spare time the other day and went through the 
tracker, reclassifying a few things and marking some with a 
"needpatch" keyword.  The ones marked "needpatch" vary from things I 
have no idea what to do with, to ones where I've practically spelled 
out the needed patch in the tracker.

Issues with patches that passed my initial review have been marked 
"in-progress"; these could use some testing before check-in.  At this 
point, I haven't had an opportunity to review the results of the test 
sprint that was done; if somebody could throw that up as a patch on 
the tracker, or at least repost a link to where I can find that 
stuff, that would help.

All of this is with an eye to releasing an 0.6 final in the near 
future; sometime this month I'd guess/hope, depending on how my other 
projects are going.
