Summary: pimp needs to do download itself

Initial Comment:
Pimp currently uses the OSX programs curl and tar to download distributions and unpack them. There is absolutely no reason not to use the urllib and tarfile modules for this.

urllib2-based downloading has been implemented in pimp.py rev. 1.31 
and 1.27.4.2, thanks to code donated by Kevin Ollivier.

Unpack has been implemented, downloading isn't that important, leaving 
that for later.

There is actually a very good reason to use at least the tarfile module: if we 
use that in stead of unix tar we can fiddle pathnames while we unpack. 
Thereby we can do per-user installs of packages even if the tarfile was 
created for a system-wide installation. (That is, once the details of where 
per-user packages are going to be stored have been worked out).
