What I am after is some method of keeping exactly one copy of each package-version in the common area (ie, one might find foo-1.2, foo-1.7, and foo-2.3 there), while also presenting only the one version of each (let's say foo-1.7) to a particular installed program. On linux it might do that by making soft links to the common PYTHONPATH area from another directory for which it sets PYTHONPATH for the application. Finally, this has to be usable by any account which has read execute access to the main directory.
Does such a beast exist? If so, please point me to it!
I have been meaning to do something like this for a while now! But unfortunately I can't find the time.
If you do choose of start implementing it, please let me know. I would be happy to help out.
