I think Marcel has a point...

Much can be done and should be done to improve packaging and applications
for python.

That's why I for one am working on the python package manager project. On
sourceforge.

It uses the pypi interface to search.

Actually we haven't made a release yet. Still many.. many things to fix.

It is being worked on...

Just a GUI for package management that lets you seperate what is available
for the python platform that you are running on. Install, deinstall, and
get package information.

https://sourceforge.net/projects/pythonpkgmgr/

We only have source at the moment. Only for windows... and only for
python 2.5. Pretty limited... but we'll get there.
