You should be able to mess with setup.py install arguments to install virtinst
into /usr/lib/pymodules/python2.6, which is where ubuntu seems to store
things, or some other place in the default python path.

See python -c 'import sys; print sys.path' to see all the place python looks
for modules on your system.

See python setup.py install --help to see available install options.
