install pyopencv with pip on Mac OS X

I am trying to install pyopencv with pip in OS X Mountain Lion and it fails by import setuptools. Following is my work. what is "Library" in setuptools? I have not seen that before. I already installed opencv via homebrew and other things. In doucmentation of pyopencv, it doesn't explain installation with pip only source install,

EDIT: I found setuptools source has Library and Extension (https://bitbucket.org/pypa/setuptools/src/27df3c725f9696ba730456f3f444cc2fb5271d4b/setuptools/extension.py?at=default) But I don't know why it doesn't recognize.

My setuptools' verison is 1.1.6

(img2)appleparan@LiamMac src $ pip install setuptools --upgrade
Requirement already up-to-date: setuptools in /Users/appleparan/.virtualenvs/img2/lib/python2.7/site-packages/setuptools-1.1.6-py2.7.egg

Answer

In recent version of setuptools, Library is inside of extension.py. pyopencv should import Library as setuptools.extension.Library not setuptools.Library.
