I think it's quite trivial actually. Since everybody agrees (except perhaps PJE)
that Distribute should replace setuptools, the word will spread and trickle
quite quickly in the various layers of the community.

If you look at the XFree86 -> XOrg transition, I don't think there have been a
lot of problems to bring people to understand the change.
