We don't punish anyone here. We try to avoid breaking distutils because it's really easy to get broken and get people upset. (you ask me)

This bug has been opened for years and no one commited it because it's very very hard to review. it involves many parts, many people.

I am not sure how we should do this, but here's my proposal for distutils2 at least:

- make this new feature a standalone package that patches distutils
- release it for 2.x
- let's add your work in distutils2 as well, so it's back in the stdlib in 3.x
