I searched on the net and found pyLAS, but it seems to require quite a few other modules and I couldn't get the install right.

Any pointers will be much appreciated.

What about the liblas Python API (not sure how lightweight this is though)?

>>> from liblas import file
>>> f = file.File('file.las',mode='r')
>>> for p in f:
...     print 'X,Y,Z: ', p.x, p.y, p.z
