Yes that would be a feature request. we would be happy to add. e.g. make the 
commands works with server X ou server Y.

Distutils2 is developed at http://hg.python.org/distutils2 and will be included 
when ready in the stdlib (circa 3.3), as a distutils replacer. It's in fact the 
distutils trunk, with lots of changes (some are backward incompatible). It will 
be installable from 2.4 onward. 

It does not follow the same process. Which I have described in python-dev last 
week: http://mail.python.org/pipermail/python-dev/2010-November/105772.html
