For http://bugs.python.org/issue6555, I was wondering if anyone recall
why we have two different names (pydistutils.cfg vs distutils.cfg)

As Zookoo pointed (and Google, if I search for "distutils.cfg
pydistutils.cfg" :) ) it brings a lot of confusion, and I would like
to deprecate pydistutils.cfg
and have ".distutils.cfg" and "distutils.cfg" for the user-level file
(unless someone finds a good reason it has to be different)
