Do not try installing distribute every time setup.py runs #5

Make distribute installation optional (if setuptools/distribute is already installed, do not call use_setuptools)

My problem is that I have setuptools installed instead of distribute, and I do not need to install distribute in order to use cssmin. So I added a try/except for setuptools package, so it is not mandatory to always install distribute.

This approach looks better and should still make distribute zealots happy (a bit at least :)

I would love to see this change get in :) Distribute actually just got merged back into setuptools recently, so distribute is now deprecated.


Issue #13 is related to this.

I fixed this in v0.2.0, which is now available on PyPI.
