Pot, I'd like to introduce you to my friend Kettle.  :)

Seriously, all of this boils down to the distutils.  If we could do 
CPAN-like dependencies, neither Zope nor Twisted nor PEAK would have these 
vague handwavy marketing materials.  We'd all have a list of things that 
people could download, each with far-less-handwavy descriptions.  And we'd 
be reusing a lot more of each other's stuff, I imagine.
