I'd describe that as an incredibly degenerate case.  ;-)

Guido & I just had a little pow-wow about this, and decided that this
is worth changing.  I'll make the changes to the code so that the
documentation is right.

Can you please file a bug report on this so I don't lose track of it?
It should be assigned to me, priority 6.  (So that I actually need to
review your distutils patch first. ;)

Thanks for reading the development docs and bringing this up!
