      Description

      Having sat with people recently watching them install climate, it has become obvious that the default behavior for the easy_install scripts should be invoking the -e flag.
      The script specifically say

      It is recommended that you pass -e when running this script. If you don't, parts
      of this installation will pollute your global Python install. If you're unsure,
      pass -e just to be safe!
      

      A user never sees this message though unless they know that

      • there is a -h flag to print it
      • it is too late and that they have already messed up their environment!
