Robert: I don't think that running scripts in /tmp is inherently unsafe.  It is Python's sys.path handling which makes it unsafe.  That being said, I am not against distutils being "fixed" but I do think the root issue should be fixed.

And of course you're right about complicated permission checking and ACLs and what not.  But I think my patch does the Right Thing in 99% of the cases, in particular for /tmp.  I tried to err on the safe side.
