No problem. I've added a note about this to the docs in CVS now.
By the way, I've also just checked in 0.6a6, which I think should be able
to handle all the custom Unix install stuff you can throw at it. It's a
major update to the installation instructions, and a 'virtual-python'
script based on Ian's contribution is included. And of course there are
various bugfixes, etc. I'd appreciate it if you could take it for a spin
on a few platforms before I release it, since TurboGears users seem to be
my biggest group of "customers" at the moment, especially for non-root Unix
And of course, I'd love to get feedback from anybody else, not just Kevin. :)
