 We create one handler in a command-line script, not in the lib, which 
 is the Right Way AFAIU, but there is also one module that creates one 
 handler (in order to set its level depending on a verbose attribute) 
 deep in the library code, not in the command-line script, which I think 
 is bad.  Our tests that instantiate that object (dist.Distribution) end 
 up modifying logging._handlerList, but I feel that the code is wrong, 
 not the tests.

 The code is on https://bitbucket.org/tarek/cpython, in Lib/packaging.
