Hmm. On Os X this would be a problem.

first you need sudo rights to install in system.
Then, for the release builders that have to juggle with several python
versions, the standard install location is not good.

I would largely prefer that we create a txt document about how to
do a standard install, but without making it part of the build system.

Then, that being said, i agree on the 1.0 requirement.
