[Distutils] GCC versions and binary egg names

Hi All,

In addition to the UCS2/4 problems already described by MAL and which 
I've bumped into myself, I now have a problem with binary linux eggs 
where the GCC version doesn't match that of the system the egg is being 
installed on.

Current egg metadata doesn't take either of these into account or even 
provide a way for the nature of the binary egg to be recorded.

How're people coping with this?
What are the future plans in this area?
