Nope. Python 2.3 distutils has logging support that we can start using in 
future. I am not sure how much effort is needed to get logging support to
earlier versions of Python distutils (that is, solely in the frames of
scipy_distutils). Until then pipes and tee can be used for creating
log-files of the installation process.
