It is hard to get it right for all - we chose to keep it functioning the way it was, for CI check/gate.  As soon as the 1.0.8 .deb packages are in Trusty, we'll get those included in the Openstack CI slaves. 

(In the past we had to support Centos6 for a slave host OS and didn't have rpms available)

We'll add an option to setup.py - we can retag it.

I see - we'll retag a 1.0.9 with rpaths removed.  Thanks for the suggestion.

Will do.  Thank you.
