[Distutils] Distribute instead of setuptools for virtualenv?

I'd like to know if I can create my virtualenvs with "--distribute" without
any other changes, since distribute is advertised as being backwards
compatible with setuptools?

I'm trying to circumvent https://github.com/pypa/virtualenv/issues/202 and
Distribute comes in handy.

Also, if this works just fine, wouldn't it make sense to make Distribute
the default for virtualenv at some point?
