4Suite goes through great lengths to support setuptools.  What are the 
problems that you are having with it in regards to setuptools?  Python 2.5 
and setuptools works just fine with Linux, Mac OSX and Windows.  We are 
getting *VERY* close to a final release and we would like to fix any problems 
you are having .
