I think that virtualenv is the right answer for folks who need to reuse
the system python, but be insulated from its site-packages (and be able
to install their own packages without touching the system environment.
Ian Bicking, who authored workingenv, has basically dropped further
development on it in favor of virtualenv.
repoze.project uses virtualenv to create "sandboxed" Python
environments, into which the custom packages are then installed,
followed by the installation of scripts, config files, etc. to make the
environment ready to run the given application (Zope2, Plone, Grok to date).
