Armin Ronacher just published a new utility for creating prebuilt
virtualenv tarballs called "platter": http://platter.pocoo.org/dev/

As he notes, it means you don't even need pip on your production systems.

>From the looks of it, it would also be well suited as a foundation of the
"venv in a native package" model where you use apt or RPM to do the
deployment, deployment to a user-space-tools-only PaaS environment and
container image builds.

I haven't used it myself yet, but I'm going to start looking into it for
use with Kallithea.
