If I want to switch my work from one computer to a new one, and I have lots of

just copying the Python/Lib/site-packages folder, but I'm also guessing this
isn't sufficient. I was hoping I wouldn't have to just one-by-one install all
of those libraries again on the newer computer.
I probably want to develop on BOTH these computers for the time being, too. One is at
home and one is at a "remote site"/secret lair. And then I'll be doing it
again when I buy a newer computer at some point.
Make a list of the packages you need. Put it in a file called
requirements.txt. Then install them with:
$ pip install -r requirements.txt
Keep that file up-to-date as you add new requirements.
