the pil distribution from our site is a patch to our own
py15 distribution (available from the same place). if you
just unpack it on top of the py15 directories, it should

others have told me that this patch works just fine with
the python.org distribution, but I haven't tried it myself
(I don't use the standard distribution, by obvious reasons).

I'm still looking for volunteers to create an installer that
fits right in with the python.org distro... (the linux folks
can handle this, you know ;-).  anyone?

(it shouldn't take more than an hour or two to set things
up, which makes it a rather easy way to earn a lot of cred
points ;-)
