I think developers and system- or application maintainers have different
viewpoints in this.
As a developer it might be a good idea to have different installed pythons
in different environments to be sure that some modules (or python itself)
meet different requirements.
But as system maintainer I like to keep things simple. I do not want
similar trees of python installations all over the place if it can
