[Python-Dev] the distutils2 repo and 3to2

Now that packaging has landed, the distutils2 repo is going to be
re-seted and will be the python 2.x / 3.1 / 3.2 backport of packaging.

In theory, we want to automate the extraction of packaging from the
stdlib and a few other modules, and run 3to2 at install time. Or
should I say 3.3tosomething.
I want to do this to avoid maintaining yet another code base. In
practice, I don't really know the current state of 3to2 so we'll see..

Any help/hint in this project would be appreciated.
