It's probably not a good idea to put anything in /opt/local/bin
If you link it as bin/pyzord, for example, and that port later starts
linking into bin on it's own, you'll receive an activation error, and
you'll most likely have forgotten that you linked it yourself and not
understand the error. (apologies for any assumptions about your
technical memory skills)

It might be better to link into ~/local/bin or somewhere else that's
completely under your control.
