Yes, I also think the original idea of the OP is a good one. And I
agree with you that the developers need to be in charge what
platform/version their code supports. Trouble is that currently if
they decide to support multiple versions and platform they don't have
any help from or PyPI. It would be great if after a
developer decided to support some platforms and some versions there
was some infrastructural help in place.


Psss, psss, put it down! -
