Akira: Why require people to manually run this command instead of bundling it into distutils?  After all, install_scripts is just a cp, but distutils still does it :)

I wonder if this should be a built-in functionality like in Fred’s patch or an install hook shipped in a subpackage of distutils2, say contrib.hooks or ext.hooks.  Hooks have the nice properties of being small standalone pieces of functionality that are composable (think WSGI middleware), and this would also be a good hook example.
