I tried installing Myghty 0.99a using this command:

    python setup.py install --prefix=/usr/local/mojam

(e.g., non-standard install location).  It downloaded setuptools and
installed a bunch of other stuff (Paste, etc), all available as eggs.
Unfortunately, it didn't create packages and didn't make the pkg_resources
module available.  Any hints about how to get this working would be
appreciated.  (I have no idea what other details you'll need, never having
used setuptools - directly or indirectly.  Let me know if there's more I can
do to explain the situation.)
