The idea is useful; I think there might be another way to do it now 
that you've given me the idea.  I'd prefer to do it in a way that 
doesn't copy code, i.e., by having __getattr__ return something that 
makes the distutils-level behavior the same as before, but not by 
copying the old distutils code.  That having been said, this might be 
a good patch to go in the meantime.

I am thinking, btw, that it's time to retire the 0.6 stable branch 
and begin only doing new stuff on the trunk, anyway.
