Subject installation procedure

Right, so I note that we have not actually finished sorting out the 
installation process yet. It seems to me that it might be best to deal 
with the problems through appropriate documentation rather than any 
coded solution. We could of course question whether that is sustainable 
as we get more plugins as part of a default install.

Anyway, I have been fighting a bit with pip installation as I also 
wanted to see if the instructions could be changed to download all the 
required packages to a known location first and then pip install. So, 
something like:

    pip install --download="./dependencies/" -r requirements-download.txt
    pip install -r requirements-fromdl.txt

I'm trying to work out how well this and variations on the theme work.

This, for instance, looks like it might also work as long as the trac 
and various bloodhound entries appear first (reusing the single file):

    mkdir /path/to/bh_local_cache
    pip install --no-install --use-mirrors -I
    --download="/path/to/bh_local_cache/" -r requirements.txt
    pip install --find-links=file://path/to/local_cache/ --no-index
    --index-url=file:///dev/null -r requirements.txt

Going with this download route would seem to only allow us to specify 
the files to be downloaded as tarballs or zips. That is, I don't believe 
any of the following would work for installing the Account Manager plugin:

Would using the 
as suggested by Olemis be a reasonable way to go or does anyone want to 
suggest other alternatives?
