I agree with Steve, we shouldn't be constrained to preserve all the undocumented internals of distutils - doing that in the past is what has made distutils essentially unmaintainable.

I don't think there's a concrete example of real code that will be broken by this change - if I follow the comments correctly, MAL's code will still work ("I guess we'll then just continue to override the .initialize() call"). Without a specific breakage that can't be fixed to work with the new code, I don't think this patch should be blocked just because people might be using the old internals.
