[New-bugs-announce] [issue6555] distutils config file should have the same name on both platforms and all scopes

New submission from Zooko O'Whielacronx <zooko at zooko.com>:

Currently we have this:

http://docs.python.org/install/#location-and-names-of-config-files

The distutils config file can have one of four different names depending
on which platform and which location.  This makes it harder for people
to remember the file's name and location, and more complicated for
programs that want to detect it.  Why not give it the same name on both
platforms and all locations?
