My use case was that I had installed PIL with a different python2.4  
than the one that I used to install easy_install... However it is  
probably easier to start python and type help(modules). Given that one  
has the info from "a)".

Maybe this also is asking too much. I was thinking that it could check  
the system paths to see if more python interpreters come up. But it  
might just be a hassle to maintain such a feature with different  
platforms etc.

Sometimes, one isn't in total control... :)
