Numpy uses a fork of distutils anyway, and currently nobody builds against 3.5 because of the compiler change. There are all sorts of monkey patches out there against this module and msvc9compiler (I've written some) and those should be unnecessary now, so I want then to break.

I also don't see any reason for distutils to continue supporting old compilers, since 3.5 requires VC14, but maybe I'm wrong about that?
