[kepler-dev] [kepler-users] Missing python modules when using the Python Actor

Is there any reason (licensing or otherwise) why the entirety of jython
isn't shipped with kepler?I can understand reasoning into not making it easy
to hook up a local install of jython, since different versions of jython
could cause different behaviour in kepler, but it would be easy to set up
kepler to use a local jython environment which includes all the standard
site-packages (jython without the Lib/ directory leaves a quite limited
subset of python. kinda like trying to program anything in Java without
being able to import anything).

I've set up my build.xml to use the $JYTHON_HOME env variable to find the
jython installation (defaulting to $KEPLER/lib/jar/ if $JYTHON_HOME isn't
set). I would check this in, but I think it would be better if jython was
simply shipped with kepler. However, if there is a consensus that the
ability to specify the jython install should be made available i will
happily check in my build.xml.
