Here's Guido's take on wget:

    import sys, urllib
    def reporthook(*a): print a
    for url in sys.argv[1:]:
         i = url.rfind('/')
         file = url[i+1:]
         print url, "->", file
         urllib.urlretrieve(url, file, reporthook)

If you extend this, you can offer an easy-download-and-run python
script that does the installation you want.

But why duplicate existing effort? Why not pip[1]?
