I'v been using 'build_ext --inplace' for a long time to be able to run my python packages in-place while developing them.
Now I have played a bit with setup.cfg as it appeared this way I would not need to spell out the '--inplace' option on each invocation of setup.py.
However, with the setup.cfg file in place (and working well as far as the 'build_ext' command is concerned), I realize that the 'install' command doesn't work any more, i.e. as it doesn't appear to know that my extensions are now stored in place, it doesn't install them.
Is that a feature or a bug ? Is there any way to teach the install command about build_ext using 'inplace' ?
Thanks for any suggestions, Stefan
