Re-reading the current distutils (1) code, I realize that it'll switch
to 1.1 *only* if you have used
provides, requires or obsolete, so it's partially implemented.

The new class is much cleaner in the implementation, and so is the
register command for PyPI.

Notice that we have almost finished the implementation of PEP 345 on
PyPI side so we will soon be able to push PEP 345 fields over there.
