New submission from anatoly techtonik <techtonik at gmail.com>:

I am troubleshooting local issue with distutils and UAC on Windows, and I need to compare resulting binary archives. Unfortunately files to bdist archives are added in random order and this complicates comparisons. This patch makes distutils archives more deterministic.
