VTK in python

Hi all,

I want to use the Visualisation ToolKit from python.

However, I cannot find an easy way to install it. Of course, I could
download the source, use CMake to build and VS to compile it,
but... yeah, that takes a lot of time and will probably not work the
first time...

I noticed that with VTK 4.0 there was a vtk40python.exe installer
supplied. But that realease if almost 7 years old... Why is such
an installer no longer distributed with the newer releases?

I hope I overlooked something, or else I guess I should go compiling
tomorrow... :(

Thanks for any help,

PS: I know entought ships with VTK, but it's such a huge install I try
to avoid that...
