I think you should qualify all such statements like "distutils is good
enough for *me*" and ideally also describe why exactly it's good
enough for you. Such blank statement does not bring anything to the
discussion (for example I could reply with "distutils is clearly not
good enough" and we're both right and we did not get anywhere).

For example distutils is absolutely *untestable* which makes it very
far from good enough for me.
