Ah, I am using the first 1.0.3 tarball, not the one with r3845 in it. Yes, I
think we should release a that fixes that issue and the problem that
Travis had that caused him to do that in the first place. We should branch it
from the tag rather than the trunk because of David Cooke's merge.

Also, I removed misc_util.get_path() in favor of another function thinking that
it was only used internally. Travis, can I put it back for Not having
it breaks some older forms of setup.py's that were closely translated from
scipy_distutils. Notably, scipy 0.5.2 still has one (of my making!).
