I'm not sure I like the way the simple idea Antoine has now resulted in a complete mess across platforms.

None of this is documented anywhere except on this ticket.

Since the change is a major one for anyone creating installers, packagers or otherwise dealing with compile extensions, I think we will need a PEP documenting the changes - and perhaps even have this discussed in retrospect on python-dev, possibly updating some of the changes already checked in.

Reopening the issue until this is done and the PEP accepted.
