FYI, distutils is frozen because even minor bug fixes have broken third-party tools in the past, that’s why new features and bug fixes land in distutils2. Only some bug fixes that are sure not to break things make their way into distutils. distutils2 will be reintegrated into the stdlib in 3.2 or 3.3, but standalone releases will be made for Python 2.4 up to 2.7 and 3.x.
