Right, that does it for me as well, thanks a lot! I was thinking about
a much more complicated solution. I just don't know enough about
distutils internals to be able to come up with yours - I think more
examples would be welcome. When I finally get my MMTK setup file
working, I'll gladly submit it as an example - at currently 205 lines
it is probably one of the more complicated ones.
