please don't close this yet.  the patch introduces a dependency on the distutils package.  I don't see any reason to compare the libc version as a python egg version, so please avoid that.

if we need to have a module to compare arbitrary version strings, then we should think about adding one in the standard library, but I think that's what the packaging module is for.
