That's good to know.  One of our Turbogears applications uses Babel and
it definitely doesn't install to the right place.  I'd love to fix it to
take advantage of Babel' properly.  Would you be kind enough to point me
documentation on how to get Babel to install locale files?  Looking at
the babel website, I only see documentation up to building the message
catalogs.  If the install portion is integrated into setuptools is there
something I might have to configure in setup() to tell babel/setuptools
what directory to use?
