[New-bugs-announce] [issue12257] Use PYPACKAGING_USE_SDK envvar instead of DISTUTILS_USE_SDK

New submission from Éric Araujo <merwok at netwok.org>:

packaging still uses the DISTUTILS_USE_SDK environment variable to tweak compilation on Windows.  Do we want to change the name?  Pro: separates distutils and packaging, con: requires users to set one more var during the transition period.

I don’t know if MSSdk is distutils-specific (on which case the same question about renaming or not applies) or if it is a Windows envvar used by many tools (in which case packaging can continue to use it too).
