After giving it some thought, I've decided to hold off on pushing out 
the 0.6c10 release until Monday morning, since it's likely that some 
people have scripts or build processes that run off of ez_setup SVN 
or the latest PyPI version of setuptools...  and who aren't aware the 
release is coming and might be surprised by it.  It would therefore 
probably not be a good idea to push this out on a Friday.

Also, this will give those who are using Distribute and do *not* wish 
to use this release, a chance to upgrade to the latest version of 
Distribute first.  (Which, if I understand correctly, includes code 
to prevent accidental re-installation of setuptools.)
