Ever tried this in distutils?

python setup.py bdist_wininst --bdist-dir=/my/source
is a really efficient way to wake you up even if time is approaching

On my machine it does:
running bdist_wininst
running build
installing to /my/source
creating 'c:\docume~1\be\locals~1\temp\tmpimyffc.zip' and adding '.' to it
adding 'setup.py'
creating dist
removing '/my/source' (and everything under it)

Where the last line is the "fun" part. Maybe it should somehow be
mentioned in the documentation that this will happen?
