[maemo-users] [maemo-users] How to add the SOAPpy package?

Due to storage space limitations on the device the pymaemo runtime
does not include the distutils package. You need to use the Maemo SDK
on the PC that has the distutils, build the application there, make an
installer package and then install it to the device.

Here is kind of a tutorial for this...
