updating it.

I'm using my own install scripts, just wraps a direct SVN checkout. I
tried eggs, but it installs RB to somewhere like
This path changes everytime I upgrade to latest SVN revision, can
caused great problem for Apache config file, like
[Alias /reviewboard/media /usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/reviewboard/
Same problem happens to Djblets. When I install Django as egg, it just
installs into:
Much easier for path finding. If I have to soft link media path by
hand, why not use a script and do a "svn export", which can work
