Setuptools users already explicitly declare what projects their projects 
depend on; this is how easy_install can then find and install those 
dependencies.  So, there is at least one system already available for 
Python that manages this type of thing already, and my understanding is 
that the py2exe and py2app developers plan to support using this dependency 
information in the future.
