The code should not be changed anymore at this point, and I am working on the bootstraping so installing Distribute will work with an existing Setuptools installation and will replace it for the applications that requires it. This is done by detecting an installation of Setuptools, and replacing it with a fake installation. This means that once you’ve installed Distribute, applications and especially installers will think that setuptools 0.6c9 is installed.That’s pretty strong and intrusive, but required for a simple switch : even if the programs you are using have a setuptools dependency, they will work without requiring any change on the code or in their setup.py files. Same goes for zc.buildout apps.
