Haha funny..

Well using that logic, distutils is an application..

Are you saying that distutils should be removed? That
is most certainly an application.

Lets not get too pedantic here. Mercurial and bzr have a built
in API that can be called in a library like way. It's true they
also have a command line interface in the same way that distutils

I'm not saying anything negative about distutils. Given that
Tarek has an upcoming Pycon presentation where the program
talks about a distutils revamp.

I'm hoping that he can find some young 20 yr olds and
put a cool web interface on that thing. Given that there
are empty sprints at pycon. It couldn't hurt to throw
that challenge out. Anyway, we'll see..
