distribute broken with Python 3.3

Anonymous created an issue

When installing a package, distribute runs scan_module, even when told to always unzip. scan_module depends on the pyc format, which changed in Python 3.3.

File "/home/jim/p/buildout/git/eggs/distribute-0.6.27-py3.3.egg/setuptools/command/bdist_egg.py", line 429, in scan_module ValueError: bad marshal data (unknown type code)

Gven that distribute ignores the zip safe flag and that non one wants zipped eggs anyway, it would be best to just remove this feature and stop scanning.
