    Looks pretty reasonable. You could perhaps use sys.prefix if no prefix

    has been specified? Also, I'm not sure why you're adding a new

    'dest-dir=' option rather than reusing the 'root=' option from the

    standard distutils.command.install class.

Probably because I didn't understand the role of the root= option.
