Dear Nick and other distutils listeners,

I love Python and I use it daily.

On the other hand there are other interesting programming languages out there.

Why not do "thinking in sets" here and see python just as one item in the list of a languages?

Let's dream: All languages should be supported in the ever best packaging solution of the future.

What do you think?

This is basically what conda attempts to do. It's nice in some ways, but does also have limitations.

In any case this isn't​ a very useful thing to post here? Distutils and pip and pypi aren't going anywhere, and the folks here are all at their limit trying to keep them from falling over, so taking up time with these super vague blue sky ideas is a bit rude.
