What is the easiest / recommended way to tell the bootstrap to use
distribute by default?

I could live with a clear DEFAULT='setuptools' line at the top of the
module, so even if one changes that line, the diff to the original
isn't too large. Otherwise some config file would be the next but more
complicated option.
