Hmm, I'd hate to hear the impolite form!  ;-)

No, you don't have to horse around!  Of course you can use xemacs and
compile mode.  (I wouldn't dream of building anything from an xterm

"python setup.py build", then you can click on the errors.  Or create
a trivial Makefile with these contents:

	python setup.py build
