Ah, never mind. I had screwed up my install somehow--not sure. In any case, it 
seems all too easy to do that.

As a plea to everyone on this list: please keep in mind that what you decide 
affects large numbers of package authors and an even larger number of users. 
Please give us the packaging stability we need. The well-being of the Python 
ecosystem is at your mercy.

Be excellent to each other--and to your user community.

Thanks for all your work,
