Maybe it's nice to have both. Leave it to the third-party to decide whether 
it's a good idea to install in numarray.addons or in site-packages/.

For stuff that's not too dependent on numpy (PyGame for instance) it would be 
better to install in site-packages/. For other things (like PyQwt) it might 
be better to locate them in numarray.addons.
