More or less that's true.  Though the distutils hacks that pyfits, 
pywcs, and some of our other packages rely on makes doing this "right" a 
bit trickier.

I'm in the process of overhauling these packages so that it will be 
easier to distribute them on PyPI (with the correct dependency 
management) and have releases pushed out regularly.
