The reason I have not so far is I have not found a way to get what I
want done:

1) create directories in site-packages (I gather this shoudl be easy
2) copy already compiled (.pyc) and source (.py) files to those
3) create directories and copy files in a directory kept in an
environment variable

Can distutils do this for me ?
