Today a novice programmer asked me about dependency management in Python and how he can ship his scripts on windows. Oh boy was my answer long and complicated.

@buckket I really love Python but the Python packaging system is insane.

For distribution packagers, updating Python by one point release means retesting every single Python module shipped in the repos, some of which depend on each other.

I wish Python had a smarter system for dependencies.
