This sounds like a useful abstraction; I'm not sure if there are
established ways to do this, but I'd like to see something like this
in PyPI.

I think you'll have more uptake if you:

  - make a distutils '' for easy install/uninstall
  - submit to PyPI so it's easily found and installed over the net

Please ask here, or contact me directly (email address munged) if you
want assistance with doing these steps.
