Sorry, easy_install installing mechanism is kind of broken/useless for what I need to, because it doesn't run post installation scripts.

In view of this that I just learned, I'm stopping using PyPI to distribute this.

In the future I may start using it again, if I change the distribution library, but in the mean time please use an alternative installation method (from the tar.gz, from the .deb, or subscribing to the PPA).

Thank you and sorry for the inconvenience.
