[Bug 975668] Re: mailman.client conflicts with mailman installation

** Description changed:

  If mailman.client is loaded as a separate module (as instructed), then
  mailman cannot exist in the same environment because there are two
  "mailman" modules to search.
  I found this when I tried to generate sphinx documentation for mailman
- after I had installed protorious.
+ after I had installed postorius.
  To reproduce:
  mkvirtualenv BUG
  bzr branch lp:mailman.client
  cd mailman.client/
  python setup.py develop
  easy_install sphinx
  cd ..
  bzr branch lp:mailman
  cd mailman
  python bootstrap.py
  python setup.py build_sphinx
  Results in:
  Running Sphinx v1.1.3
