[Build-common-hackers] Bug#507966: CDBS should cleanup .egg-info directories

Package: cdbs
Tags: patch
Severity: normal

The clean target for the python-distutils.mk class currently leaves
behind the .egg-info directory created by setuptools-based packages.
This leaves maintainers to remove the directory manually in the clean
target in debian/rules.

This already affects several packages in the Debian repository that have
to do the cleanup manually; see kiwi, pida, cheetah, markup, configobj,
or sqlalchemy.

The attached patch against CDBS trunk should do the necessary cleanup.
