[Distutils] Pypi to enforce wheel, python3 - is it possible?

Wheels can't be required because they can be platform/python version
specific, being binary distributions. We can't demand that independent
developers support some combination of platforms and versions when their
computer might only be running one of them, simply because their wheel
might be platform dependant rather than universal. Pypi doesn't even allow
Linux binary wheels at the moment because compatibility between different
things and distros that all call themselves "Linux" running on some
instruction set is a big wild problem for the moment.
