I don't understand why there are so, so, so many dependencies running Python.  Also, I don't understand why something isn't installed, right after I just installed it.

Have you actually run any code from the Python tutorial yet?  You can do 
lots of things with Python that require no third party libraries.  In 
fact many questions here go "I need a solution to this that must be in 
the stdlib".  It strikes me that you're trying to enter an Iron Man 
competition before you can crawl.

My fellow Pythonistas, ask not what our language can do for you, ask
what you can do for our language.
