[Distutils] logging into distutils

I'm playing lately with distutils (on the 2.7a branch).
This "sudden" interest has been triggered by the python bugs:
What I've found (IMHO) is the lack of proper logging while stepping through
all the loops inside the code.
In fact distutils.log (the log module used internally) It is loosely written
resembling the logging python module but missing the full elegance in the
api: is there any reason it could not be made very similar to it?
I think this is one of the reason is not more deeply spread into the distutils
package (a useful tool in diagnostic, IMHO).
Because I'm out of work at the moment (It might not last forever tough) I can
do it if there is any interest and send a patch set to be reviewed.
Beside this to the people interested I can provide a binary compiled python
version with the patches hosted on the suse build server system:
This is totally system transparent so it can be installed and de-installed
without impact on the host system.
Let me know your toughts please,
