I hope to see the light on that too. ;-)
Meanwhile, my problem was that after creating the virtualenv, as cited in the
blog post above linked, I got stuck in installing pip (and thus distribute) in
that virtualenv, because 'VENV/local/bin' is not in the $PATH (and it seems
reasonable for a virtualenv that this will remain stable).
So, (IMHO) if changing the $PATH is not a good idea, either python should do:
1. patch distribute and pip to do not install in ./local by default if in a
VENV. (enviroment variable based?, whatever)
2. create the links after creating the VENV (my naïve solution)
Am I right or I completely hit the wrong issue?
