The standard way for 3rd-party modules to do this is to provide a
downloadable package that includes a "setup.py" script that you can run
to install the module:
python setup.py install
The GUI-part of"Package Manager" with MacPython is not included in
ActivePython, but the commmand line version (pimp.py) is still there:
python -m pimp -h
python -m pimp -l
python -m pimp -i PIL
