No, the focus of packaging efforts has moved to pip and setuptools
specifically to avoid that problem - when metadata 2.0 is adopted, it will
be supported at least as far back as Python 2.7, and likely on 2.6 as well.

The only requirement will be to use setuptools (or another metadata 2.0
compatible build system) and pip (or another metadata 2.0 compatible
installer) rather than using distutils directly.
