[Baypiggies] VirtualEnv and Django question

This is the config that works in most other situations for me too. We have a
package (recaptcha client) that is packaged from easy_install (and I think
some non-standard customization from the creators) that can't be found with
this environment. I've struggled with this package before. Virtualenv and
pip install of this package works perfectly from the command line (which is
great I don't have to go in and look at this manually as I've done in my own
creation of virtual environments). However, with settings like you have, it
can't find the package...  This is why I'm considering the activate_this.py
within the module.

Thanks for letting me know that this is how you handle it so I know I'm at
least in the right ballpark of the solution.
