Given that reST is the format all of Python's docs are in, it'd be nice if distutils(2) would support looking for README.rst (in addition to the existing README & README.txt).

Hi, thanks for the report.  Distutils is feature frozen, and distutils does not included README{.txt,} by default anymore*.  I don’t know why Tarek changed that.  If he changes his mind, I’d be +1 to your proposal, otherwise it will be rejected.

* The code right now still does, but it’s because of a problem with the repositories, it will get changed again.
