use of

While communicating about making TeXML distribution archives, I've got examples of powerful use of "".

Using "" is a standard Pythonic way to install Python packages. Here is a bit of documentation: "distutils -- Building and installing Python modules".

And the new knowledge I've got is the commands

python bdist_rpm
python sdist --formats zip,gztar

The former command should create a RPM archive, and the latter -- zip and tar.gz archives.

I think there are more powerful uses of "".

But at the moment I have a problem. Copying files to archives is not enough. I need also some modifications made on the fly. Hope it is possible.
