My suggestion: make a setup.py that simply checks the running version
of Python, and then execfiles 'setup2.py' or 'setup3.py'
accordingly. That should be relatively future-proof.
Personally, I'm not aware that anyone has successfully run setuptools
on Python 3 anyway, so it's likely moot. (In truth, I'm not sure how
much *distutils* has been tested on Python 3.)
