I’m afraid that won’t work: depending on how python3 is installed, it may install both pysetup3.3 and pysetup3, so distutils2-python3 can’t use any of these names.

Note that on Debian and probably other systems, two packages really cannot use the same file path without using some machinery; just overwriting something is not permitted.

(On a related topic, I’m not sure distutils2 should ever install pysetup or pysetup3 without version number: contrary to e.g. a mail client where I don’t care about the version used, this is a version-specific program that should have a version number in its name.)

The problem really is that when we talk about “the 3.3 version of pysetup” we may talk about the one that comes with packaging or with d2.
