The people who use pythonlibraries are programmers. It can be expected
that they are comfortable with the command line. If not, somebody can
write a GUI for easy_install/pip interfacing to pypi.
Applications are expected to have a graphical installer, so a
gui-version of zc.buildout then? (I'm only half serious).
