Using setuptools with Jython 2.5

Thanks to the people on jython-users for this one.

On newer versions of Jython, you can use easy_install to grab python packages easily.

wget http://peak.telecommunity.com/dist/ez_setup.py
jython ez_setup.py

Your shiny jython-based easy_install will be available at $JYTHON_HOME/bin/easy_install. Brilliant.
