Will all due respect to PJE, but I sincerely doubt this will happen. There's
still a bunch of outstanding patches over at the setuptools tracker,
including SVN 1.x support, which have been open for more than a year.

Personally I consider setuptools unmaintained and have started moving my
projects over to Distribute.

So, if you decide to wait, make sure to put a deadline on it.
