You completely missed the point of that mail. I did not manually create
a symlink. I described what the "python setup.py develop" was doing,
and highlighted it was stupid.
Git knows how to go up dirs to find .git. For a 30-year old language to
have issues like "module does not find itself despite it being running"
is just laughable.

However, given you know how crap python is, why are we using it again?
It should be a very high priority to get away from that. If not for
HDL, at least for the simulator and utils run by more people than just
the core HDL devs.
