you only work on a single project too, I assume.

I tend to prefer not to install a broken extension in my machine's
default install, in case I have to switch to another project...  (and
switching between projects is all I seem to do these days ;-)

(and I maintain too many modules to afford to install a separate
python interpreter for each one of them...)
