This requires root access. Without sudo, I get:
$ installer -pkg /Volumes/Python\ 2.7.3/Python.mpkg/ -target ondrej
installer: This package requires authentication to install.
and since I don't have root access, it doesn't work.
So one way around it would be to install python from source, that
shouldn't require root access.

Yes, that would be my goal eventually. Without root access.
But right now, I am not even sure it's possible.
So for now I'll simply use already pre-configured box.
