Hi Chris

Thanks for coming back to me on this.

I've had a good (python path, etc) search over the archive.  I can see
there's some discussion on this sort of thing, but I'm afraid I'm unable
to follow them.

I noticed somewhere there was mention of a two stage install process,
but I'm unsure what the second stage might be after following the README.

If I've got to do something more to install properly, a pointer would be
really appreciated.  Please, how does one update the Python module
search path?  (Or just a pointer to a faq?)  And, perhaps that
instruction be included in the README?
