Hmm, I thought everyone was too scared to change distutils. Brave man :-)

More seriously, I'm not sure I can comment usefully, I don't really understand any of this code, and the changes are pretty big. I guess the biggest risk is that someone directly references the changed code in a custom distutils command.

Hmm, I just checked the numpy sources. It looks like numpy/distutils/command/ references msvc9compiler. And there's lots of references to msvccompiler. I'd suggest you confirm if numpy (and probably scipy) still build with these changes.
