You can put the files (bufsock.py and python2x3.py) in your current
working directory - Python will import from your CWD.  I believe
python2x3.py should be checked out via an external reference since you
used svn.

You can put the files in your site-packages directory.

You can put the files in a directory like ~/lib, and then
sys.path.insert(0, os.path.expanduser('~/lib')) .

I probably should make it pip'able, but I don't think it's going to
happen today.
