I completely agree with your expectation, regarding *3rd party* python
packages. We shouldn't expect developers to install packages from
repositories that fall outside of their normal distro repos.

However, my understanding was that python3-distutils should be available
as a normal (not 3rd party) component on Ubuntu 18. I think we can
expect developers to install additional packages if those packages are
readily available in their normal (distro-provided) repos.

Right, that's exactly what I'm asking for. Thank you very much!
