Heh, I never realized you were Dutch. :-)

It took some time to find.  I thought distutils was in 291,
but as you point out there's nothing there now.  So after
finding some references to distutils and 291, I did an svn
log on the PEP and sure enough:

r1982 | akuchling | 2005-03-20 12:47:01 -0800 (Sun, 20 Mar
2005) | 10 lines

After some discussion at the distutils sprint at PyCon 2005,
it seems that no one really wants to make a new standalone
release of Distutils. Given that, there's no reason for
Distutils code to preserve backward compatibility, so I am
removing the requirement for 2.1 compatibility.

I'm not sure if I'll have time to review this patch soon
(probably over a week).

Is this patch required to get Python working on x86 Macs?  I
know there were a couple of bug reports about x86 Mac.  If
so or you want more testing, it would be better to check
this in sooner rather than later.  I doubt I will find more
on a second review of this patch (and I try to review all
checkins).  So if you want and think it's appropriate go
ahead and check in.  If you want more review, you can try to
wait for me or solicit input from python-dev.
