What I do is use pip (or easy_install) but I tend to use virtualenv &
keep everything out of the way of the system Python, etc.
Virtualenv seems to be the recommended way to go nowadays but I'm no
real pythonista so I expect somebody will point you in the right direction.
But masters, remember that I am an ass.
Though it be not written down,
yet forget not that I am an ass.
