I heartily support something like this, but alas I have not the time to  
help out with it.  I like the Enthought python distribution because it  
installs several packages in one shot.  A pity there isn't a similar thing  
for python addons in Linux (or is there?).

Something apt-get-like would be cool.  Was there talk of having the python  
package index support something like this at some stage?
