If you install as root, you should be able to run the scripts as normal
user. However, I don't recommend this approach since it could conflict
with your system Python packages.
I like using virtualenv to create isolated Python environments. I can
easily install whatever Python packages I want into each environment,
delete them when I am done with them or messed up etc.
