Cool. Note that I think this problem will get worse as system
packages include more and more of the packages we use. I read
yesterday that the Python in Mac OS X Leopard includes zope.interface.
Yes, that's true. It's included (version 3.3.0) because Twisted needs
it, which is also part of the standard OS X 10.5 Python installation.
From what I heard Twisted is used for the OS X Server CalDAV service.
From a sysadmin view I'd be afraid that careless use of easy_install
for the system Python has the potential to break such built-in OS X
applications. Another reason not to use the system Python.
