Never mix package managers

Today, I decided to dive into Python and explore some web frameworks.
Instead, I've spent the better part of the day messing around with
package problems on Mac OsX.
The problem? Mixing package managers. I had installed py-setuptools
from Mac Ports. Turns out it's still far behind, so it barfs when
easy_install uses it to install something like mysql-python.egg.
I should know better. On Ubuntu, I only use apt to get the language,
and the rest is managed in rubygems.
