When we first added actions to pysetup, the install command was renamed to install_dist to avoid a name conflict between the install command and the install action.  Later, the run action was introduced and now serves to namespace all commands.  Thus, we have no conflict anymore.  I would like to restore the original name of the install command, for distutils compat: people used to d1 build/install will get the same name, and the section in config files (which are currently compatible with d1 and d2, except for install_dist) will share the same name again (letting people give options in [install], not [install] and [install_dist]).

I'm +1 on this. Having an "install" command, on a distribution, makes more sense than having an "install_dist" one, because of course the object is a distribution!
