I don't know how easy it is to do if you don't use debian, but all the 
tools are available on debian.

I asked someone to test it and he did install it successfully, but I know 
there's something things that aren't quite right [1] and doesn't completely 
satisfy debian policy if it were to be formally included (e.g., man page 
and other policy issues.)

Python is much fun! Like coding in object orientated pseudo-code with 
powerful scripting conventions. Rather slow though at time, so it's nice to 
have C libraries to call upon.
