Another consideration here will be how distutils will work in a python with restricted permissions - the pattern of "just run 'setup.py install'" will not work unless it is done from an elevated command-prompt.  As I expect this would frustrate people we'd need some story to address this.

My take is still that Python is a tool, not an app.  People writing an app they with to distribute using Python should include Python in their package (ie, not rely on an installed version) and these apps should conform with the guidelines.
