Apply the fixes and don't bother increasing the version number.  The
standalone Distutils releases happen in sync with Python releases, and
are so that users of older Python versions, particularly 1.5.2, can
get the current set of Distutils fixes.  I don't think there have been
enough changes at this point to make it worth issuing a new Distutils
release; indeed, I don't know if it's worth the bother of issuing them
any longer.
