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.
