Also, those of us using Debian already have dependency information for
Python modules through apt. It's not much fun to do a lot of work
implementing a parallel Python solution that will still be less
functional, as apt will also handle dependencies on non-Python
software or libraries, a difficult task for a Python-only system.
Switching to Debian has neatly killed my urge to work on a catalog.
