[PEAK] Small Issue installing Extremes with pip

I'm writing to ask for a little patch against the Extremes package.
Apparently when building from source Extremes assumes ez_setup is on
the build environment. As shown here
http://svn.eby-sarna.com/Extremes/setup.py?view=markup This together
with the way pip installs things (using sdist) is causing the build of
TurboGears to fail as reported here

The solution is really simple. All we need is a try/catch block around
the ez_setup of the setup.py which will allow it to continue. if
setuptools is present but ez_setup isn't.
