Fair enough.

What I know is that every scheme I've come up with for working with my 
own under-development packages has been a pain in the #$@, and -develop 
has worked well for me.

I hadn't read the thread carefully enough to realize that the OP was 
asking about a non-root install, but in any case, I'd still encourage 
that folks set ONE standard place in their PYTHONPATH, rather than one 
for each package, and make sure you're careful about running more than 
one version of Python.
