GitHub will not work with easy_install, because GitHub downloads page
uses https and easy_install does not work very well with https.
Another problem is that PySide project is using free edition of GitHub
and there is a size limit  (200 Mb or so). One windows package has cca
40 Mb and there are 6 packages (for py 2.6, 2.7, 3.2 - 32 and 64 bit),
this is cca 240 Mb for each release.

I will try to contact Qt project administrators if we can't upload
binaries to Qt Project site.

If completed, it should replace the existing build scripts and will
enable to install PySide with pip.
