To some degree, SCons is a separate topic, or at least it is in my
mind. You're talking about "how do I get these libraries to coexist".
I'm talking about "how do I write software to automate my various
dependency-oriented project tasks".
That reminds me, have you remembered to hug a Debian developer today?
Boy, they make dealing with version hell look easy, don't they?
Have you looked at virtualenv. I'm haven't been 100% sold on the idea
yet, but I know it's a way of running multiple projects with their own
separate required versions of various eggs.
I, for one, welcome our new Facebook overlords!
