And regarding moving the still-relevant content to the main distutils docs,
yeah that's still a good idea. However, that's going to take a fair bit
more work, since you'll need to evaluate the legacy content to decide what
needs preserving, and I don't know the technical details well enough to
make that call.

I figure the approach in my patch is a neat hack to move that task off the
Python 3.4 critical path, while still giving new Python 3.4 users a clean
and authoritative starting point for packaging issues :)
