Oh, apparently there is a standard/builtin python distribution
mechanism called 'distutils'.

I guess on the install issue my only suggestion would be for the
pexpect README to say something like:

To install this package on your system run:

      bash$ python install

I read the pexpect README file but it didn't say the bit above and I
had never heard of distutils.

Thanks Fredrik!
