Aaargh, that Gliph talk gave me a *lot* of food for thought. And that's a good thing.

​His main argument is that not using a virtualenv can lead to version conflicts. Eg: app you installed with apt will probably break if it depends on packages installed with pip. Not to mention the metadata and uninstall mess that come with that.

A sound argument. However, none of that applies to a Docker image. You'd have a single set of dependencies, so what's the point of using unnecessary tools and abstractions. :-)​
