Where does setuptools install its wrapper executables? (The usual \Python24\Scripts directory isn't added to PATH by the installer).
setuptools installs them in PythonXY\Scripts.
Unless you set --install-scripts somewhere else, which you can do in a configuration file. To the greatest extent possible, I'm trying to have setuptools minimize surprises with respect to installation locations, by conforming to the active distutils configuration.
Does anybody else think that installing to PythonXY\Scripts (instead of to PythonXY) is broken? With Perl and Ruby, for example, scripts from a 3rd party package will be installed next to the main interpreter binary (i.e. on the PATH) on all platforms. Would having setuptools (and changing distutils) to install scripts next to python.exe wreak unwarranted havoc?
