+ Set to ``True`` if you want to use distribute_ instead of the default
+ setuptools_ in the virtual environment. Prior to tox-1.5 the
+ default was True and now is False, meaning ``setuptools`` is used
+ (note that setuptools-0.7 merged with distribute). In future versions
+ of tox this option might be ignored and setuptools always chosen.
