As far as I can tell, to get a customer experience instead of a
prospective co-contributor one.

I'm sorry Thomas, as long as you continue looking for a coherent
customer experience from a collaborative collection of volunteer-run
community projects, you're going to continually be confused and

The Python ecosystem *does* include commercial vendors that offer to
make opinionated technical decisions on behalf of their customers, as
well as providing a single point of contact for support questions and
feature requests, but beyond that, offering an overwhelming array of
confusing choices is pretty much the way open source *works*.
