#162: python library availability

Priority:  major          |   Component:  Package

 When trying to use python libs included in the OSGeo4w install they
 sometimes fail due to various path issues. It would be great if running
 python or any python IDE out of OSGeo4w would work for importing
 osgeo(gdal ogr), shapely, liblas etc.

 Attached bat file is for launching the pythonwin editor that is included
 with OSGeo4w, but with correct paths to allow loading GDAL/OGR bindings. I
 have not been successful in getting liblas(might be related to ticket:119)
 and have yet to try shapely and the other libs. A note though, pythonwin
 when launched even with this bat file appears to be using the system
 installed python not the OSGeo4w included python. (This may help solve
