I've released version 0.1.2 of distil, downloadable from [1]. It's based
on distlib 0.1.3, which brings support for PEP 426. The other changes are as 

* Fixed a bug in pre-release handling which occurred when there were
  *only* pre-releases available.

* Added support to convert "bdist_wininst" installers to wheels. This is
  done by using "distil package", specifying only the wheel format and
  giving the path to the installer in place of the source directory.

* Added --wheel-version option to package command to allow specifying
  a wheel version when building wheels.

* Fixed bugs in uninstallation code which occurred only for some

* Fixed a bug in package data installation where data in packages
  not explicitly named in package-data was missed.

* Updated "distil link" to show existing links when invoked with
  no arguments.

* When building wheels, native executable launchers are not included, and
  scripts are not generated from exports.

* Added support for PEP 426 installation hooks.

* Added --target argument to "distil install" to allow partial
  installation to arbitrary directories.

* Added --prereleases argument to "distil install", "distil test", and
  "distil download" to support inclusion of pre-releases when locating
  distributions and performing dependency resolution.

* Numerous documentation updates.

Your feedback will be gratefully received!
