+1 to renaming a Pulp3 'Distributor' to be 'Exporter'. The name of a
'Distribution' (when Pulp serves bits using its webserver) would stay the
same. Currently the names Distributor and Distribution sound so similar
that its very confusing. A Distribution and an Exporter would be clearer
names I think.
