This version is almost entirely devoted to fit-and-finish issues such as 
improved error messages, better PYTHONPATH, --prefix, and "site" directory 
support, better SourceForge handling, etc.  There are also a few minor new 
features such as:

* The 'find_plugins()' API I described here previously

* A few new methods on Environment and Distribution

* You can package single-module distributions for EasyInstall by using just 
a URL: pointing a link to a .py file with a "#egg=project-version" tag on 
the end will tell EasyInstall to auto-create a setup.py to go with it.  Or, 
if you simply list a .py file as the "Download URL" of a PyPI listing, 
EasyInstall will automatically figure out the project name and version 
number, without needing the tag.

I'm going to have limited time and net access from now until the weekend, 
so my responses may not be as quick as they usually are, but please 
continue to inform me about any issues you may encounter.
