I get this (using the simplistic direct invocation of run_setup):

    $ python
    Python 2.5 (r25:51918, Sep 19 2006, 08:49:13) 
    [GCC 4.0.1 (Apple Computer, Inc. build 5341)] on darwin
    Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
    >>> from distutils.core import run_setup
    >>> d = run_setup('setup.py', ['-q', 'install'])
    >>> d.get_finalized_command('install_lib').install_dir
    Traceback (most recent call last):
      File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
    AttributeError: Distribution instance has no attribute 'get_finalized_command'
    >>> d.get_command_obj('install_lib').install_dir

I guess I'm missing something here?
