Python dummy interpreter

Hi all,

I remember a tool which (basically) creates a directory somewhere in
the user's home directory and puts a copy (or perhaps link to) the
python interpreter, adding that directory to the search path. In this
way, it is possible for a user without root permissions to install
additional packages using easy_install (i.e. python setup.py install).

I can't find it now that I go looking again. Can anyone give me a
pointer on this?

Thanks,
