setuptools... as far as I can see isn't actually installed until you
Pip (http://pypi.python.org/pypi/pip) and enstall
(http://pypi.python.org/pypi/Enstaller/3.1.0) seem to be forks of
So it looks like it's already been forked to some degree..
What hasn't happened is enough testing of pypi packages and installing
with setuptools/pip/enstall from pypi.
If the xmlrpc links actually "worked" on pypi...
ie.. that they would allow a developer to download a packages via rpc....
then this whole issue could probably be fixed more easily...
ok - the process isn't perfect...
but there's room for improvement...
