I just said that I don't care about easy_install related issues.
Especially because you are interested to use SQLAlchemyDA in a
real-world installation as a replacement for some existing DA against a
real-world database. I have never objected contributions to my software
by other people. So everybody is free to fix and improve SQLAlchemyDA
and other stuff on svn.zope.org - it's open source :-)
