It may work 100% correct on the first time only though.
While playing with it, I tried to create another "bfg on gae" project and
for my surprise it didn't work because appengine-monkey patched my system's
python distutils putting a hardcoded value for [install] in my distutils.cfg
(which happens to be installed in my $HOME/bin).

With that said, I believe appengine-monkey is not the best way to get BFG on
GAE and it would be better if people that have a sane process of achieving
this tried to document and hopefully advertise that approach.
