Ok, I see. If you've got your own local Python installed that you can
write to, and that python is the first on your $PATH, everything just
works with no extra options and things just get installed into your
own local ``lib/python2.n/site-packages`` dir. Don't need a ~/pylib
for an all-local setup like this.
