Virtualenv totally rocks. I do all of my development in (and targetting)
various virtualenvs dedicated to particular projects I'm working on.
Along with pip making (and fulfilling) frozen requirements files for me,
it's also how I manage my deployments as well.

If you do start using virtualenv (at least under Linux and/or cygwin), I
highly recommend virtualenvwrapper
(http://www.doughellmann.com/projects/virtualenvwrapper/), a set of
shell aliases/functions to help in organizing and using multiple
environments. If you are developing under native Windows, you may want
to check out env.py (http://bitbucket.org/jdriscoll/envdotpy/wiki/Home)
