haha ... sounds like distutils for windows..

I stopped counting how many user requests for distutils related
functionality go unanswered on this list.

Give us a break and stop bagging PJE. So what if he has less time
or motivation to do work on setuptools. 

"AWOL" as in 'absent without leave' is actually a criminal
accusation for which the punishment for that offence is gaol 
time in most countries.

I certainly do not believe PJE is a criminal or that he is
working in the military or has deserted his (paid) post leading
to a potential to loss of life (as would be in the military).

You've won - you've forked his project, have your own team. Why 
the need for public humiliation on top of that? 

People just want to help..
