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?
