Seeking quick opinions on a marginally Python-related question:
I decided to move from macports to brew.Should I install brew under /usr/local (default) or /opt/local (said to be better for separation)?- I'm on MacOS 10.8.x- I want to have multiple installs of Python 2.x, 3.x and various other libraries  and tools (octave, Vowpal Wabbit, word2vec, Spark etc.)- I don't want any grief from Mac system libraries, version dependencies, etc.- I read StackOverflow et al. and there is no clear consensus
