From my point of view, the PEP 3149 text is just a proposal. It leaves the
final decision to PEP 384, but tries to address some of the issues raised
during the PEP 3149 discussion. I think it is within PEP 384's scope to make
the final decisions about it.

I would favor changing distutils, if it can be done in a way that reasonably
preserves backward compatibility. I suppose it's impossible to know all the
ways 3rd party code has reached into distutils, but I think you can make
fairly good judgements about whether a change is backward compatible or not.
