So, I added the last two "oldnames" lines to the defsetup.py module, just
as you said Mike. There is a "win32" check for sys so I added that under
there. After it finished, I was able to import pywcs without any errors. I
haven't tested it or anything as I'm still learning all this, but I imagine
a successful import into Ipython indicates that it installed correctly.
