They should not pop for now on (if you get the freshest nightly build)

Thanks for cheering. I am done now with the bootstra*p*ping work and
ready to publish 0.6

0.6.1 will contain more bugfixes but at least, people will be able to
upgrade and contributors
to work on patches in a friendly DVCS environment, while we
concentrate on splitting the
distribution, and on py3k.

I will also switch back on my side on PEP 376 work and distutils, and
hope some other
people will start to contribute in Distribute.

I'll wait for any other feedback and for Hanno feedback (they are
sprinting in Bristol/UK)
and I'll push a release Thirsday or Friday unless some bad feedback occurs.
