Using virtualenv to bypass sudoer issues

Thank you all for you insights.

I'll probably go with virtualenv, I'll be able to distribute it among the team.
There's still one point worrying me though:
We're doing a lot a remote execution. We're using "execnet", and I'm not sure it can be compatible with virtualenv. execnet working at the "python level" I don't see how I can execute shell stuff before.

I had a look at fabric, and it looks like it can handle virtual env (anyone confirm?).

Has someone already successfully remotely activated a venv then execute a python scripts within that env, getting back the stdout/stderr ?

I'm afraid right now that switching to venv would mean switching from execnet to fabric as well (I hate redoing stuff that works :-/ ).
