Comment(by hobu):


 I think it would be more productive to make the Rtree distribution on PyPI
 easy_install'able instead of putting a copy on osgeo4w that very likely is
 going to get out of date.  What would you think of that?

 Alternatively, I could put a windows Rtree egg on PyPI that users could
 download to their home directories and then point at with PYTHONPATH.  I
 know neither of these solutions is overly convienent for someone trying to
 have consistent software to teach a lab,  but I'm concerned that after a
 single release, I'll totally forget to update osgeo4w again.  If we modify
 the distribution stuff to push what's needed to PyPI it will always be up-
