    Another thing that may have failed to have been mentioned earlier:
if a python package uses easy_install, there's a potential for
corrupted data and missing install registries, so everything that uses
easy_install cannot be parallelized at this time. This is a bug in
easy_install that I need to provide a quick hack to fix upstream
because it's affecting my group at Cisco right now too.
