-m (--multi-version) tells easy_install that you will be responsible for 
ensuring the package is on sys.path at runtime.  It will not create 
easy-install.pth (although if there is one in the target directory, it will 
remove existing references to the package being installed), and it will not 
check PYTHONPATH or sys.path or .pth support.
