This should be fixed (with a better solution forthcoming).

Now, I'm not sure what is meant here.  They install evry time for me, 
but currently not to the main Python include directory.

I'm not sure I like having the headers not installed to the Python 
include directory.   It will be harder for people to use scipy_core as a 
replacement to Numeric if they have to re-write their setup.py scripts 
to find the headers.   The Python include directory is included by 
default. 

Is it as easy for people to just use the setup from scipy.disutils?
