   I'll look into using virtualenv and possibly tox once I get into 
issues with mismatched installed Python package versions, but for now 
I'm dealing with installing different Python interpreter versions and, 
unless I'm overlooking something here, virtualenv does not help with 
that. :-(

   Thanks for the suggestion though, I'm definitely going to read up on 
those packages soon. :-)
