http://bugs.python.org/setuptools/issue27 is also pending as Jython  
really needs it going forward. PJE acknowledged this would make the  
next release as long as there's tests (which there are). Since he  
hasn't applied it yet, other reviewers and testers are welcome.

I also recommend the incredibly simple http://bugs.python.org/setuptools/issue47 
  make the next release in preparation for the soon to be released 2.6.
