Except that as already stated on this list:
* messing around with your /System/Library/Framework/Python is a VERY  
bad idea.
* sudoing your install might not be the best option. You can define a  
directory where to install your new sources with the --user option of  
`python setup.py install`. It's safer and cleaner.
