FWIW, easy_install [1] is making things so that more and more
installing stuff is not much additional burden.  I'll admit that I've
hardly found easy_install to be problem-free, but since it seems to be
the wave of the future (and a welcome wave at that) I've pushed for
support in recent versions of the XML tools I co-develop: 4Suite [2]
and Amara [3].  For many people these are now very easy to install.
This is the case for some other third-party XML tools as well.
