Please no more enhancements in distutils ! even in the tests.

Distutils is on maintenance mode, and we need to do the bare minimum there. we need to do the minimum changes.

If there's a bug in PyPI related code in distutils, you need to do this:

- fix the bug in distutils2, with the mock server + a test
- backport the bugfix only

resolution:  -> wont fix
