Well, then they need to fix their version strings:

Python 2.2.1 (#1, Aug 30 2002, 12:15:30)
Type "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.

IPython 0.2.15pre4 -- An enhanced Interactive Python.
?       -> Introduction to IPython's features.
@magic  -> Information about IPython's 'magic' @ functions.
help    -> Python's own help system.
object? -> Details about 'object'. ?object also works, ?? prints more.

In [1]: import distutils

In [2]: distutils.__version__
Out[2]: '1.0.3'

At any rate, I beleive you that the install-script option is _not_ in the 
distutils which comes with python 2.2.1, whatever version it is.  So I'll go 
fetch out the CVS code and see how it goes.

Thanks for the info.
