virtualenv doesn't notice when installing distribute fails #301
Trying to create a new virtualenv outputs
Only when -vvv is activated, the output shows (irrelevant parts snipped):
so actually distribute install is NOT done. Virtualenv should notice this and abort the installation at that point, reducing time to debug the situation.

I have a local fix to virtualenv_embedded/distribute_setup.py , but I've sent it to distribute first since it's the upstream for that file: https://bitbucket.org/tarek/distribute/pull-request/23/
Once distribute is updated, it will be a matter of running bin/refresh-support-files.py and bin/rebuild-script.py to update virtualenv.
