Agreed.  However, disutils commands have this structure:

    python [ options ] command [ more options ] ...

which I think can get kind of confusing.

The problem with wxPython is that it's got stuff written in C++ while Python
is typically compiled with C.  I don't want what the system was built
with. ;-)
