Enhancement proposal for setup.py

Hi all,
since we've now got a Build/ directory containing the various setup.cfg 
files for the different platforms, I thought we could enhance setup.py 
to simply guess the correct CFG and pull that in directly from Build. We 
could also make it recognize a debug build and use a debug CFG.

This comes in handy for me, at least, since this way I put my different 
configs into two different files which don't clutter the main dir and I 
cannot miss settings anymore.

Obviously this should be extended to override this and use a particular 
CFG (esp. when cross-compiling), but I'd say it's a start. Here's the diff:

 cfg = ConfigParser()
 if cfg.has_section('_ldap'):
     for name in dir(LDAP_CLASS):
         if cfg.has_option('_ldap', name):

How's the idea?
