Distribute is intended to replace Setuptools as the standard method
for working with Python module distributions.
The project has two goals:
- Providing a backward compatible version to replace Setuptools
and make all distributions that depend on Setuptools work as
before, but with less bugs and behavioral issues.
- Re-factoring the code, and releasing it in several distributions.
This work is being done in the 0.7.x series but not yet released.
