Why do I get the feeling that most people who hate distutils and want
to replace it, has transferred those feelings to distutils2/packaging,
mainly because of the name?

In the end, I think this discussion is very similar to all previous
packaging/building/installing discussions: There is a lot of emotions,
and a lot of willingness to declare that "X sucks" but very little
concrete explanation of *why* X sucks and why it can't be fixed.
