I tried this and 0.6.15 still came up. So now I was really puzzled. 

After some digging I realized that I still had my PYTHONPATH set for
the sytem python2.3 installation. And that the ipython install in
PYTHONPATH was the one gettting run.

After blowing away PYTHONPATH, 0.7.0 worked just fine.

(I also didn't realize that the egg's in site-packages are actually
directories. If I had realized that I could just 'cd' into them, I
wouldn't have messed with the setuptools API)

 So this can basically be chalked up to user error.

 Thanks for the help.
