That's why I think this is a mug's game; people have wildly differing
needs, and you can't meet them all. <broken-record>The correct fix is
to make it easy to automatically download & install packages
automatically; distributions then become simple lists. "You want to
do Web development? Grab Cookie.py, wizard.py, DocumentTemplate, ..."
"Numeric work? NumPy, PhysicalValue, Snow, ..."</broken-record>
