Yes, as far as application running (cw-ctl) is concerned. This is quite 
independent of the virtualenv.

My concern is more about running tests. In my experience it is quite 
hard to use both cubes from a source tree and cubes from the system. I 
wonder if this couldn't be solved by making the "cubes" package a 
namespace package.
