I just submitted a bug report for setup.py:


It begins:

    Python's setup.py has grown way out of control.  I'm trying to build and
    install Python 2.4.0 on a Solaris system with Tcl/Tk installed in a
    non-standard place and I can't figure out the incantation to tell
    setup.py to look where they are installed.


and ends:

    This might be an excellent sprint topic for PyCon.
