+Very often though, a user or developer wants ``easy_install`` to install and manage python packages
 in an alternative location, usually for one of 3 reasons:
 
 1. They don't have access to write to the main Python site-packages directory.
 
 2. They want a user-specific stash of packages, that is not visible to other users.
 
-3. They want to isolate a set of packages to a specific python application, usually to minimize

 python distributions support an alternative install location that is specific to a user [2]_ [3]_.

+The Default location for each OS is explained in the python documentation
 for the ``site.USER_BASE`` variable.  This mode of installation can be turned on by
 specifying the ``--user`` option to ``setup.py install`` or ``easy_install``.
 This approach serves the need to have a user-specific stash of packages.
 
 .. [2] Prior to Python2.6, Mac OS X offered a form of the User scheme. That is now subsumed into the User scheme introduced in Python 2.6.
 .. [3] Prior to the User scheme, there was the Home scheme, which is still available, but requires more effort than the User scheme to get packages recognized.

 Use the "--user" option and customize "PYTHONUSERBASE"
 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
 The User scheme install location can be customized by setting the ``PYTHONUSERBASE`` environment
 variable, which updates the value of ``site.USER_BASE``.  To isolate packages to a specific
-application, simply set the OS environment of that application to a specific value of

 ``PYTHONUSERBASE``, that contains just those packages.
