Following major changes to VTK's CMake file in recent months, one
thing that has remained to be updated is setup.py. At this point, we
don't have the resources to update it. If there are any volunteers in
the community that would like to  take that task over, that's great!
Otherwise, we are planning on deprecating setup.py for installing VTK
python modules in VTK 6.0.

This may or may not affect package maintainers for various Linux distributions.
