[New-bugs-announce] [issue12424] distutils2: extension section uses bad environment marker separator

New submission from Eli Collins <elic at assurancetechnologies.com>:
The _pop_values() function in packaging.config uses "--" as the environment marker separator when parsing extension sections. This doesn't match PEP 345, or how the metadata section is currently parsed, both of which use ";" instead. Also, "--" is frequently found in compiler option strings, which will probably cause conflicts in the future.
The attached patch changes _pop_values() and related unit tests to use ";" as the separator, as well as tries to clarify some of _pop_values()'s internal comments.
