[Distutils] [issue41] need support for post-install scripts

New submission from htgoebel <h.goebel at goebel-consult.de>:

easy_install needs some mechanism for running post-installation scripts. This is
required by eg. pywin32 (see issue18) and py2exe. If uninstall is implemented
(see issue21), pre-/post-uninstall scripts need to be supported, too.

I suggest adding new entry-points:
- easy-install.post-install
- easy-install.pre-uninstall
- easy-install.post-uninstall

(pre-install does not make sense, since typically the package can not be used
prior to installation :-)
