Let's try this again.  If distutils2/packaging is meant to actually be 
part of Python 3.3, I think it needs some documentation and 
implementation loving.  Is there a list of outstanding issues that need 
resolution?  I'm willing to row on them, but I need some direction.

I can't really see packaging being included in Python 3.3 without a good 
bit of work being put into it.  Am I mistaken?
