This would break standard behaviour of distutils. If you have a look at 
the distutils build_scripts.copy_scripts() in the standard library[1] 
you will see that the scripts kwarg is referenced. If possible I think 
we should stick as close as possible to how the standard library does 
things while we are using distutils.

As mentioned, there is no urgent need to support 'python 
develop' in the release (it a feature for developers), so I would 
suggest just reverting hg4963:cdfb1a3fb56f instead of trying to land 
some last minutes changes to that run the risk of introducing 
new bugs just before a release... especially if migrating to setuptools 
might end up making any new changes redundant anyway.
