Thanks for this mixed feedback. I understand that my detailed posts 
about installation on Windows may bore those who have a working CW 
environment. And frankly I would rather like to have one sooner than 
later to get to the really interesting stuff. However, it appears that 
installation on Linux is much better supported due to the more mature 
packaging system than Windows. I also get the impression that CW 
developers are keen to make it smoothly installable on Windows which is 
- like it or not - a popular platform. And if I have to go through a 
somewhat bumpy installation process I make an effort to let people know 
what might be wrong rather than working silently for myself which would 
arguably not contribute to solving any problem.

My concern regarding where cubes are installed is that there should be a 
consistent policy. Either install them all in site-packages or in 
Pythonxy/share/cubicweb/cubes/, but not some here and others there 
depending on whether you use pip or not. So it is not about some 
fiddling until it happens to work on my machine, but to make CW 
installation more fun in the future. Before using symlinks or whatever 
on Widnows I'd rather copy the package dir or egg file somewhere else.

On forest: if I had to install an older Mercurial to use a forest 
extension that is no longer being maintained, I'd believe there is 
something wrong with CW. Therefore I decided to do it withoutd hg, 
although I'd really prefer pulling from hg repos to manual 
ftp-downloads. However, I understand that there is some support for 
moving away from forest using subrepos in the long run which I think is 
the way to go.

Back to the blog cube: I am not so sure if the Pyro dependency is 
necessary given that the docs say that one can live without unless one 
wants to use multiple machines.
