Original Body: Setuptools is dead, and Tarek Ziad's fork called distribute is now the only one getting bugfixes. Distribute has received official blessing from the BDFL, and as such, it is proper to remove all use of the old setuptools. I suggest that ez_setup.py be replaced with distribute_setup.py, and the relevant changes be made to setup.py.

I don't think we need to rush that. There was a bugfix release of setuptools yesterday, so it seems it is not quite dead. And this is an external package, so it's not the realm of the BDFL - otherwise we all should stop using TG and use Django instead. Let's wait some months until the dust has settled; currently for a Py 2.x package there is no real advantage of using distribute over setuptools.
Btw, in #2169. we are already discussing migrating to pip.

milestone changed from __unclassified__ to 2.x.
chrisz, don't be fooled by that release. Distribute is the way to go. We simply can't afford as a community to depend on one person's will at merging fixes. We can't live without uninstall forever. Distribute and pip will fix packaging in python.
That said I think we should add a distribute_setup.py but not replace it.

Original Body: - version: 2.1.0 --> 2.1.5
This can probably be considered closed as PIP is used and private index got removed
