[Distutils] Python 2.7 is out and ez_setup.py does not work

Hi guys,
Python 2.7 was released in July 3, and until now we don't have
ez_setup.py working for that. It looks for an egg for each python
version, and nobody has uploaded that.

There was a guy here last month with problems to install seutptools in
his Windows, for a similar reason.
Is there so much problem to release bdists for Python 2.7?

And if you come and say to download the tarball and later install, I
was trying to use virtualenv + Python2.7 and virtualenv uses
ez_setup.py to create virtual environments.

Could someone upload the bdists and update ez_setup.py?
