I was thinking of cutnpasting the trick you were using to my setup.py,
not installing everything at the same time. IMNSHO, having a module
twisted.python.distutils with a custom setup aware of tml files would be
a nice thing to have for module developers (and I'm a bit surprised that
no such beast exists). I'll hack something, and submit it to the mailing
list if I'm happy enough with it.
