Yeah, I know about venv. The last time I tried it, there was still some
issue that prevented me from using it and I'm also still targeting 2.7

Right, the PIP requirements are more than actually required for this
particular problem. But it is indeed for benchmarking comparing
different backends for a neural network simulator.
For the log_reduction.py script the nengo==2.3.1 and numpy==1.12.0 are

On an Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU E5-1650 v3 @ 3.50GHz with 32GB RAM it
probably takes about 30 minutes with Python 3.5; longer with 3.6 because
things get written to the swap partition.
