I would like to make pysetup easier to work with when called from shell scripts or similar tools that wish to take action based on the exit code of the pysetup --search command. In this case return 0 if a match is found and 1 otherwise.

As an enhancement, print a message to stdout that the dist is not installed.


# pysetup -s Mako
Mako is not installed

# echo $?

Please review my patch in my d2 patch queue:

pysetup is currently under heavy refactoring -- see the clone if you want to help on this.

I am planning to merge it before the release, this week.
