I know about virtualenv and tried using them. Found conflicting information
and didn't know if I really needed them. I'll re-learn how to activate and
use them.

One project is for my own use and I understand now that a virtualenv with
its own sys.path appendices would work. The other project is intended to be
available for installation and use by clients (most of whom work in a
Windows environment) so I need to learn how development in a virtual
environment affects ultimate distribution via github.

This URL will likely teach me what I need to learn for both projects. Thanks
very much.
