The problem with the current situation is that the include files end
up in a rather obscure
place. Is there any other python extension package that installs its
include files in site-packages?  Can someone summarize the reasons for
the change so that this problem
can find its resting place in a FAQ somewhere? What problem does the
new location solve that cannot be solved with the --prefix option?
