I can't remember whether this has been discussed previously, but I'd
like to see the ability to quickly install simple python modules
globally, with the usage of

easy_install ./mymodule.py

or even

easy_install http://somesite.com/mymodule.py

Additionally, it would be groovy to be able to specify the entry
points in .py files, a'la

# setuptools_entrypoint = myscript:main

def main():
  """ will be called by 'myscript' script."""
