I apologize for my part in this, but moving forward I think that if
it's possible to patch and release a setuptools that works with Python
2.6.3 /and/ earlier Python 2.6.x's, then that should happen asap. If
that's not possible, then we might need to revert the distutils change
in a quick Python 2.6.4.
