Here is a _small_ patch to be able to use setuptools. It's an extension to 
distutils which allows great things like building a Python module into a ZIP 
archive called an egg.

With my patch, you can use: "./setup.py bdist_egg" and then upload the egg to 
the CheeseShop.

It would be great since the project Hachoir is using urwid and also use egg 
system :-) With setuptools, it's possible to install a program into $HOME: 
modules will be stored as ZIP archives (one egg by Python module), that 
rocks ;-)
Another patch: store urwid version in uwird/__init__.py. This may help 
setuptools... but i'm not sure of that :-) But it's also better to set 
__version__ variable.
