granted, it's somewhat awkward, but I did this recently, before upgrading
distribute-0.6.34 into virtualenv.
it involves running pip's tests using a modified .travis.yml file that
installs virtualenv from a git branch that has the distribute upgrade to be
I did this due to previous experience in watching a distribute upgrade
start failing pip tests, and having to go back and get a distribute patch,
and re-release virtualenv.
most of the pip tests default to using virtualenv with Setuptools, but
there are enough that use Distribute to smoke out issues.
