No, because I don't have any permissions config files done.  And 
thinking about it a bit more, I don't like the format I came up with 
(it's very similar to svnperms.conf), so some changes are in order.

Eh, my rationale was that "SVN revision:" makes it look like we have 
some weird ongoing svn-git revision mapping, which of course we don't. 
Really, it doesn't matter.  I'm not inclined to change it.

Cool!  It's a shame they aren't working right.  I have a couple python 
modules in zlocal on mocha that I made to get damned-lies set up (which 
never worked)... they seemed to install properly; maybe you could give 
that a look?  I don't remember if I used easy_install or not.
