Any good advice for installing additional 3rd party modules for pvpython?  In a 
Programmable Source I’d written to read in MATLAB (.mat) data files, I was 
using the scipy module ( When I wrote that, I naively thought 
to myself - WOW, it sure was convenient that they included scipy as a 3rd party 
pkg in pvpython! Turns out, I was of course picking it up from another Python 
2.7 distro. I only discovered this while testing on another OS (without any 

So, have others found themselves in a similar situation? I realize the hurdle 
depends on the module itself and, in this case, scipy is not trivial. Right
