[Distutils] Wheels and console script entry point wrappers (Was: Replacing pip.exe with a Python script)

Need a script that visits all the console-script entry points to
regenerate the wrappers. Then there are also the non-console-scripts

I consider scripts as an optional convenience, but I suppose that
isn't always the case.
