Has anyone thought of using subversion to controlled the installed python tree? (as a separate undertaking to any under development sources). It is more cross platform than rpm or dpkg
I used to do this with project directories (including Zope instance homes) but the fact that distutils (and hence setuptools, easy_install and buildout) like to destructively re-arrange packages on install it's something I'm moving away from.
Buildout is currently the "least insane" way of managing python packages...
