On second thought that seems like a bad idea. The reason for that is
that most programs have some dependencies which will not be present in
the "other" Python environments unless explicitly installed.

The whole "install dependencies for package/distribution NewtWitch" is
better handled by using pip/virtualenv. So I would instead argue that
*all* Debian installed Python programs/scripts should use

Sorry for the confusion :-)
