I'm still catching up on distutils-sig traffic from the past year, so I
don't want to overcommit myself here... but I've been thinking that we
(I) should do one last Distutils release that is 1.5.2 compatible, and
then we can decide if future Distutils releases will stick to
2.0-compatibility, or are allowed to require the version of Python that
they go with.

However, please *don't* everyone jump in and start a thread about this
now.  I'll take it up on distutils-sig when I've caught up.

Probably because the Distutils current practice is an ill-thought-out
mishmash.  That'll have to be fixed first, I suspect.  Sorry.  ;-(
