It should at least record these files for example:

Installing gen_requires.py script to /home/andrea/.local/bin
Installing remove_eggs.py script to /home/andrea/.local/bin
Installing dev_main_no_eggs.py script to /home/andrea/.local/bin

And also the link created, which is still a file written in 
site-packages imho..

I will open a ticket sure, I can't rely however on the development version,
so I'll need another way to fix this maybe..
