I actually have the same question, about ant. I assume this would be what the SystemRequirements field in a package DESCRIPTION is for, but at the moment it seems unused. Is there a plan about this ?

I have been unsuccessfully struggling for a programmatical method to
find out whether and where Python is installed.

The reason is that I am developing a package that depends on python.

directly callable via system if installed.

My main problems is Windows, though...

Has anybody faced this problem before?
