This is really a separate issue. I hope we won't either.
Unfortunately, supporting them is non-trivial, I think we've made a

I agree that for proper deployments, you shouldn't use the system
Python, but there's the case of letting people get started with
Plone easily from their Ubuntu or Mac OS X (Leopard ships with
Python 2.5 and easy_install by default) — we should be able to let
them do that too.

applications IMO. I think an installer is a better idea for
installing applications, for lots of reasons.
