Which is part of setuptools, which fights with distribute, both of which
ignore the operating system package manager.  And of course each dependency
installed also tries to use one or more of distutils, setuptools, distribute
and whatever else their author thought of.  (IIRC it wasn't couchdbkit
itself that failed to install but one of the dependencies which means
couchdbkit will not install.)

Count this as one.  In any event it would take a lot of work to figure out
the root cause and fix it all.  And bug reporting usually requires creating
yet another username and password on yet another site in yet another
different bug tracker interface.  In my case (and I presume many others)
that high barrier means that I *really* want to have to use something before
reporting a bug.

Ubuntu provides a very nice and easy mechanism to supply packages (lookup
PPAs).  If you want people to try couchdbkit versus python-couchdb then you
need to be at least as easy to install!
