They may need permission to install third-party modules themselves. That
would probably require write permissions to /usr/local/Python-2.7.5/lib. If
you are unwilling to grant those permissions, you can suggest that they
learn how to work with "virtualenvs" (http://www.virtualenv.org/en/latest/),
which would allow them to install third-party modules locally.
And, of course, they need to be saavy enough to put the new python
installation on the PATH.
