Possibly not what you're thinking of, but try creating a clean virtual
environment (python3 -m venv env) and installing no packages, and then
watch for ImportError. As you find them, record stuff into
requirements.txt and "pip install -r requirements.txt", until you have
a working program - at which point requirements.txt should have every
non-standard thing you're using.
