It's a legitimate question. It might be framed as "why does Python
package management not play well with the platform's package management
system?" Which is a reasonable enough question. On Windows, some
packages play well with Add/Remove programs, and some don't. On
Linux, some packages play well with Yum, and some don't.
The basic answer is that nobody is in charge. There's nobody
even trying to herd the third-party modules. Unlike CPAN, which
has standards for Perl packages and some level of quality
control, PyPi is just a link farm.
