Shaun, it is not working in a virtual environment. To reproduce:
* Install python virtualenv package
* Run "virtualenv its"
* Run "source its/bin/activate" to use the virtualenv
* Run now in the virtualenv "pip install itstool"

It fails with:
error: could not create '/usr/share/itstool': Permission denied

Cleaning up...
Command /tmp/its/bin/python -c "import
'\n'), __file__, 'exec'))" install --record
--single-version-externally-managed --install-headers
/tmp/itstools/include/site/python2.7 failed with error code 1 in

I suggest to not use '/usr/share/itstool/its' in setup.py. Changing this
to 'itstool/its' fixed it for me.

But then it failed with a missing dependency on libxml2. It would be
great if the tool could live without the dependency and use lxml
instead, otherwise it needs to be setup using site-packages

We cannot move forward unless itstool can be executed in a virtual
environment (using site packages is possible but not desired).

Shaun, could you take care of uploading a fixed package, please?
