           Summary: manual installation overwrites previous biopython
           Product: Biopython
           Version: Not Applicable
          Platform: All
               URL: http://lists.open-bio.org/pipermail/biopython/2009-
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Main Distribution
        AssignedTo: biopython-dev at biopython.org
        ReportedBy: dalloliogm at gmail.com

The manual biopython installation (the one made with python setup.py install)
installs all the files in a directory like this:
- /usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/Bio

The problem comes when you want to install biopython in a system where there is
already an old version installed.
In that case, it is not clear what happens to the old installation... are all
the old files removed before the new version is installed? Or are the two
versions 'mixed'?
