I don't think CPython users will have to worry about this: the
main distribution will still ship with all batteries included.
However, Jython/IronPython/PyPy users will likely only see a subset.
Creating those should be easy using a bit of distutils. We'd only
need to put the tag information into some module that setup.py can
import to easily get at the tags and module names.
