Matt, thanks for your interest.  This possibility has been discussed, so you aren't the only one who thinks it should happen.

However, I don't think this is an appropriate issue for the tracker.  This is part of an ongoing discussion and process on distutils-sig and python-dev.  It is also a PEP level feature, which pretty much means there should be an approved PEP before there is an open issue for implementing/integrating it.  I would recommend you check out the past discussions and join in on the efforts to improve the current situation.

If other devs disagree with me the issue can be reopened.
