Damn if I understand this...such a long time waiting for all these bug
fixes...so little action, so much angst...
Then that all that effort going into the Distribute fork, so much
effort expended carefully working around so that Distribute would be a
bug-fixed, drop-in replacement for the orphaned setuptools.
Then suddenly out of the blue, everything is fixed in setuptools 06c10
and we must "uninstall Distribute completely" get these fixes.
If the changes you made really were superior in any way, I trust that
Tarek and co. are smart, and egoless enough to see that and will make
those changes part of Distribute.
Too little, too late, no thanks, I'll just be sticking with Distribute
from now on.
