I haven’t read everything in this convo, but it looks like the changes proposed here cover all known downstream users other than Debian.

Is that correct?

Would these changes break Debian’s customizations substantially more than they’ll already be broken by the distutils deprecation refactoring?

If not, and if you don’t want to support the customizations that Debian wants, why not proceed with this enhancement to cover every other case, then deal with Debian later? In the short term, and possible for the long term, Debian can continue to patch the install routine, just in the new appropriate places to patch it. Debian wants something no one else wants, so they have to put in extra effort.
