If you wish for the functionality to be available in setuptools (backported), please contribute the change at At some point, contributions to CPython will also be synced there as well, and any changes there get synced into Setuptools. Unfortunately, at this stage, that functionality is only exposed through a feature flag when `SETUPTOOLS_USE_DISTUTILS=local` is set... until downstream implementations in Linux distributions and monkeypatches such as with Numpy can be updated not to rely on the implementation details as found in the stdlib.
