[New-bugs-announce] [issue14946] packaging’spysetup script should be named differently than distutils2’s pysetup

New submission from Éric Araujo <merwok at netwok.org>:
The whole point of naming distutils2 “packaging” in the standard library is to avoid name conflicts in case someone wants to import a distutils2 version from site-packages that’s newer than the packaging version in the standard library. However the main command-line entry point, the pysetup script, has a conflicting name: both packaging and distutils2 use it.
I don’t have an elegant solution to that; suggestions welcome.
