I don't know what a "debian package install" is.

I've been using ./waf install for ages.  As our install recipe changes where 
it installs things, it sometimes leaves previous stuff in old places.  After 
a while, the older stuff stops working and I have to track it down.  I call 
that old stuff cruft.

The big picture is I'm currently trying to sanity check Richard's local.pth 
recipe after applying his install patch.

It's working on Fedora but breaks on Debian.  See another message in the 

These are my opinions.  I hate spam.
