protobuf project have problems with installing via easy_install. One
part of problem is that the project provides versioned archives
unrelated to Python that `easy_install` threats as Python packages.
Corresponding package with the same version number was uploaded to
PyPI archive, but the easy_install still downloads archive from Google
Code. Why? I though easy_install should prefer PyPI package. Seems
like a bug. Is it possible to raise the priority of PyPI mirror for
protobuf project somehow?
