I might be confused; I haven't been following the goings-on of late with
distutils2.  At one point, I thought the plan was not to bless or include
dependency-managing installers with the stdlib, or something like that.
i.e., I thought the plan wasn't to support or bless full-service tools like
buildout, easy_install, or pip, or anything comparable to them.
