Setup fails without Setuptools

Bug #604430 reported by Randy Heydon on 2010-07-12

Fix Released

Bug Description opens with four lines to import the "setup" function. First it tries importing from setuptools, then from distutils.

However, the setup function is actually found in distutils.core. Therefore, if setuptools is not available, the import and subsequent installation will fail.

To solve: replace "from distutils import setup" with "from distutils.core import setup".

Thank you for the patch; applied. I'll push a new release to PyPI soon.

(Incidentally, unified diffs are easier to read and apply; diff -u is your friend.)
