How did you install it?
mmm that's weird: I do get tons of warnings but at the end it works just fine (tried with one of the examples provided). The version installed is 2.7.1
Did you install it globally or only for a specific user? I don't know if it changes anything, but I installed it as root -- sudo python install -- on my machine.
