Thanks, this already is pretty close to what I need. Playing with this 
and virtualenv, I figured out that this way it's pretty easily possible 
to have isolated Python environments _locally_. However I failed to 
package one of these environments and move it to, say, from my Ubuntu 
development host to a remote Debian server, I end up with errors like 
these while trying to run the Python off the environment on that host:

/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/ version `GLIBC_2.14' not found

I bundled all the stuff in the virtualenv and also made sure to 
dereference the symlinks in there. Are Python binaries so closely tied 
to a particular Linux environment / distribution that what I am about to 
do is impossible? Is there a "generic" Python for Linux binary that 
works on all distributions, as things are for Java?

TIA and all the best,
