For 0.6.x series, the only advantage is that we are fixing all the
bugs that were added in setuptools issue
tracker since a year or so (plus some other fixes and enhancement)

* See: http://bitbucket.org/tarek/distribute/wiki/bug_listing
* and the changeset file since 0.6.1

For the upcoming 0.7.x series:

* py3k support (maybe this will be also added in 0.6.3)
* splitting of the code in smaller logical distributions.
