I don't understand why distutils won't even get documentation updates.

Bob's report is about undocumented functionality that is used in real life and was the best way to install python distributions in a self-contained way before setuptools was invented.

AFAIK The "options" argument to setup is also not documented an that one is also used (both py2exe and py2app mention this feature in their documentation).
