Python community *must* have a robust, stable and well featured
infrastructure like Cpan, Gem or Apt. The actual situation is insane:

- Setuptools is not on Python core
- single point failure infrastructure (pypi.p.o)
- not compatible with Hg / Bzr / Git out of the box
- missing some features

As far I see, the goal is to speed up the development of a great tool,
not just a fork for fun :).

PS: within 1 month, Ubuntu 8.10 & Debian 4.2 are out (default svn :
1.5). It's not acceptable to say "use trunk version, stupid!"
