Maybe there are other ways how to deal with this, but I do:
./setup install --home=/some/path
everytime I change something - it takes just a while to do it if you
only modify python files.
And then you add /some/path into your PYTHONPATH - just temporarily.

Absolutely, name it more appropriate. That was just a general
suggestion from me how to do things.
