This handles the sdist command. The module exports an sdist action but
also some of the phases that make it up so that other tools can use just the
bits they need. In particular the preparation of the tree of files to go
into the source tarball is separated from actually building the source
The createArchive action uses the external tar program and assumes that
it accepts the -z flag. Neither of these assumptions are valid on Windows.
The sdist action now also does some distribution QA checks.
