Is there a way to specify a minimum Python version that's required by a distutils package? E.g., if I make a package, and I know it requires Python 2.1, I'd like it to check the version of Python on the system where it's being installed, to make sure that it's at least 2.1.
Only in the setup script:
import sys if sys.hexversion < 0x02010100: raise RuntimeError, "Python 2.1.1 or higher required"
but not in the bdist packages.
