Hmm.  I thought I knew quite a lot about distutils, but this particular nugget had evaded me.  Thanks!  I see that it's mentioned in the documentation, but I never thought to look in that section.  I have an aversion to .ini files; I tend to assume there's always an equivalent Python expression, and it's better.  Is there an equivalent Python API in this case?

I don't know if this is a personal quirk of mine, or a reinforcement of Talin's point about the audience for documentation documentation.
