(5) Sun Apr 10 2005 14:50 PST Beautiful Soup 2.0: After much last-minute tweaking of Python and CSS, Beautiful Soup 2.0 is released! I really outdid myself this time. Still in one file, much better at parsing bad HTML, has pretty-printer, lots of idiomatic shortcuts for writing more concise code, lots of documentation. And, in contradiction of Leonard's Immutable Law of Open Source Software, it's not plugin-based. Go for it. No Python 1.5 support in this one, unfortunately.

Who for such danties would not stoop? Soup of the evening, Beautiful Soup.

I fixed it.
Lovely, now how about using distutils? That way people do not need to incorporate your code into their scripts.If you use distutils then there could be a single instance of BeautifulSoup per computer, lovingly installed in Python's site-packages folder.I WANT MY SOUP!:-)
... a pypi entry would be nice too (and a setup.py gives you that too)
