distutils examples (IMO) is that they are _too_ simple, and it takes a lot of
trial and error to figure out how to do more complicated thingz. distutils
has a horrible learning curve: it's really easy to do what their examples say,
but anything beyond that requires digging through the (mostly uncommented)
