I'm on vacation and haven't followed this discussion well but read with
alarm some talk about how it would be expected that there would only be "one
official Python" on a system. This is categorically a false assumption for
almost everyone at LLNL. Please do not attempt to make any changes that
assume there is one place into which everything should be put, or that there
should be some system-wide registry of packages.

I thought this demon had been killed in distutils-sig long ago.
