Hi Phillip,

Thanks for your response.

Actually this problem was triggered by installing my package
that depends on docutils. In setup.py this package has:

    install_requires = ['docutils>=0.4']

Is there a way to tell setup.py to do the equivalent of easy_install -m
while upgrading its dependencies ?
