I can't install Sphinx with pristine installation of Python 3.2 and
Python 3.3 on Windows and it looks like there some bugs in
distribute_setup.py and Distribute versions. Can anybody take a look?
I think it's rather critical.

If it is bug in Distribute, maybe distribute_setup.py should be
patched to check for known issues for default version specified inside
and upgrade itself instead of giving users bad times?
