As Ronald points out, installing is only one action, and then you
have to handle all of its options too. Maybe that means
python -M install --install-dir foo --other-setuptools-options
would work, but I don't think just bare --install does. I'm also not
sure "python -M install" is a big improvement over "egg" or whatever
("egg" actually isn't bad).
