"The packaging module replaces the distutils module"

All other deprecation messages list the deprecated object first, such as "platform.popen(): use the subprocess module."  I would therefore suggest rewording this as 

"distutils module:  Use the packaging module."

Somebody (Raymond?) is going to go through and edit for style and consistency before the release.  But I applied your tweak anyway.
