     Type:  defect           |      Status:  new  
 Priority:  normal           |   Milestone:  1.0.5
Component:  numpy.distutils  |     Version:  none 
 Severity:  normal           |    Keywords:

 The menu system automatically lower-cases inputs. On case-sensitive file
 systems, this means that the path set for the prefix is also lower-cased.

 I would prefer simply to remove the interactive setup. It will always be a
 non-standard method of installation, and I don't see evidence of people
 using it except for people who have problems with it.
