Distutils is a special case: Many third-party code relies on its undocumented quirks and bugs, so it’s basically frozen. Some non-disruptive bugfixes are accepted, in which case the normal Python rules apply (e.g., no new features in 2.7 which is in beta). Work has been moved to Distutils2, which breaks compatibility in order to fix things and add needed features.

If Tarek (maintainer of both packages) agrees this can go into Distutils, Benjamin Peterson (release manager) will say whether he agrees or not. Patient a while for Tarek to see this bug report, and thanks for your work :)
