It does look as though development velocity on 'distribute' has slowed
to a pace quite comparable to setuptools, with setuptools having the
more recent release.  The two trackers are at:

 
http://bitbucket.org/tarek/distribute/issues?status=open&status=new&kind=bug&sort=id

 http://bugs.python.org/setuptools/

The bitbucket UI doesn't show recency of issue activity, which would
make the two easier to compare.

I'm -1 on preferring 'distribute' in any overt way in the ZTK.  Folks
who want it can already use it when bootstrapping a buildout::

 $ /path/to/python bootstrap.py --distribute

 or when creating a virtualenv::

 $ /path/to/virtualenv --no-site-packages --distribute envdir

The ZTK should not grow any creeping dependencies on 'distribute'.
