[egenix-users] Script to easily install eGenix PyRun in a target directory

Using a self signed certificate on the downloads site doesn't appear
to be a good idea (at least curl doesn't download the file, and my
browser very annoyingly says that I shouldn't go in), also I think
configuring the server so that browsers automatically download the
file is a better default then showing the contents.

here is an error trying to use it on osx 10.7:

./install-pyrun: line 208: syntax error near unexpected token `>'
./install-pyrun: line 208: `    $CURL -OSf# $REMOTE_PYRUN_DISTRIBUTION
&>> $LOG_FILE'
