I wonder if is it worth/if there is any interest in trying to "clean" up 
distutils: nothing in terms to add new features, just a *major* cleanup 
retaining the exact same interface.

I'm not planning anything like *adding features* or rewriting 
rpm/rpmbuild here, simply cleaning up that un-holy code mess. Yes it 
served well, don't get me wrong, and I think it did work much better 
than anything it was meant to replace it.

I'm not into the py3 at all so I wonder how possibly it could 
fit/collide into the big plan.

Or I'll be wasting my time?
