this points to an important issue that should be addressed at some point
which is the ability to quickly and easily, on the level of rpm or
apt-get, import external frameworks. I have a body of code which counts
on smtpd.py and pop3d.py. I have modified both and just created new
versions to sit within my application. Easy integration.
If I was to count on twisted, I would have another fetch fest collecting
all the pieces as well as increasing the complexity of building my
If I could simply do: py-get twisted
and have all of the dependencies resolved, it would be wonderful. as a
prototype, I would suggest wrapping apt-get with a python envelope which
automatically invokes apt-get with a python specific configuration
file for .pydeb files as well as a private repository and database etc..
Since apt-get exists for almost every version of Linux and should be
portable to other platforms, this distribution method should be
relatively distribution portable.
One can also handle upgrades of the core image of Python and ancillary
packages as well by leaving a breadcrumb file indicating which packaging
system is native and the package currently installed. <<- idea needs work
