  * Implement Setup sdist --output-directory=dir
  That is, allow generating a dir tree rather than a tarball.
  Apart from being useful directly, this is the right approach for
  tools like cabal-install. cabal-install does the tar step itself
  and might like to do other things like zip format.
  Also cleaned up the sdist code a little.

    M ./Distribution/Simple/Setup.hs +9
    M ./Distribution/Simple/SrcDist.hs -35 +45
