I thought it would be better to allow easy_install to put the files
where they belong. I was just hoping that in a .cshrc I could say
set path=($path `python -c 'import setuptools; print
or in a .profile:
export PATH="$PATH":`python -c 'import setuptools; print
This way, if I get a new version of python or what have you, my path
is automatically changed to match without me messing with
configurations, etc. I know there must be a way, since obviously
easy_install puts the files there.
I'll dig through the source and see what I can find.
