Perfect, thanks for the version information. I reproduced this and
checked in a fix so it'll work out of the box with pip 1.1 as well. That
part is a bit ugly because there isn't a clean way to know what tool is
installing it, so I need to inspect the commandline and infer.

Thanks again for testing. Let us know if you run into any other issues,
