I honestly don't see what this has to do with python-dev or the
distutils-sig. If you want to write a package management tool that's great,
but I don't see why python-dev should have input on that sort of thing.
Asking what kind of GUI to use is a comp.lang.python question and not a
python-dev question as I don't see anything like this going into the stdlib.

If you want distutils to expose something to make it easier to write your
tool then that belong on the distutils-sig. But otherwise this seems
off-topic for python-dev.
