thanks for the correction. You know, us foreigners...

Anyway, I looked up the 'huge dict' posts and didn't see anything distutils 
related. What did you have in mind?

btw, the recent postings to the distutils mailing list seem to point to 
improvements, and the current docs (on the web, not the ones from python 2.1) 
are indeed better. So I might wait out for 2.2 to come out before complaining 
too loudly. 

I really hope distutils fully matures, it seems very nice but yesterday 
trying to do things outside of the very narrowly defined options of stetup() 
felt like a huge PITA. Maybe I'm just dumb.

cheers,

f.
