The --dry-run option is ignored by the install command.
It leads to an error when used as a global option.

It should be fixed or removed.  I vote for removal, but don't really care. Removal seems easier. :)

To reproduce, create the simple project:

  http://docs.python.org/distutils/introduction.html#a-simple-example

and then try the option.
