I think we can go with "don't do that, but if you do do it, force __version__ 
to the appropriate value".

I originally thought it would make sense to have a minimum version that it 
would report, but I've realised that still doesn't solve the problem if you 
have deliberately pulled a version of distutils out of SVN.
