Fwd: PEP 314 - requirements for Python itself

P: n/a
I was thinking more about things where people can search for packages
that need different versions of python, etc.; not so much for
automation.

I'm sure writing English text like "make sure you have python 2.4
before downloading this package" is not abnormal :) How do you expect
to prevent users from downloading your package if they don't have
python your package needs? It could be useful if there was a tool to
silently download and install python, but I'm sure it is a pain to
code and support such a tool, so nobody was crazy enough to do it.
