[Chandler-dev] Network installer/launcher for Leopard

While Andi was putting together a Leopard branch of Chandler, he found
out that Leopard ships with a lot of stuff that Chandler can use, so we
don't need to build and ship that for Leopard.

I just got a follow-up idea to that.

What if we made a combined network installer and Chandler launcher for
Leopard? Basically it would check if all packages it needs are installed
and if so, launch Chandler. Otherwise run easy_install on the missing
stuff and launch Chandler after that. So something like this in code
(should put in UI for install parts of course but you get the idea):

Chandler.py

...

try:
    import M2Crypto
except ImportError:
    os.system("easy_install M2Crypto")

...

realMain()
