New submission from Zooko O'Whielacronx <zooko at zooko.com>:

Here is a patch to create --prefix= subtree if it doesn't already exist and
another patch to treat "that's not on the sys.path" as a warning instead of a
hard error.  This fixes one of the most common complaints that I heard when I
asked a bunch of people who refused to use setuptools why they refused to use it.
