Thanks a lot you gave me some new ideas.

I made first attempts with virtualenv
and easy_install

no module with C-code can be installed (some issue with tool chain)

- wsgilib installation failed therefore
- twisted installation failed therefore

I untarred twisted and tried to run twistd.

it complains about missing zope.interface
installing of zope.interface fails also with gcc error.

It seems I am currently stuck until I find a simplistic python only
solution for quick standalone wsgi_module tests.
