This is more a sysadmin than python issue.  And, debian itself has 
python dependencies, so you need to be careful you don't break it.

That said, we use a similar setup and have an aptitude repository with 
approved software that holds the approved source packages users can 
install.  Combining automated user system updating with a sole 
repository where only your versions are available should do it.
