In (ahem) principle, I agree, but my agreement is contingent upon the theoretical existence of things like "a good package manager for Python" and "installation instructions on our website which clearly explain how to install dependencies in a context-sensitive manner" (i.e. depending on your platform).

Still, I think that this work is an excellent proof of concept and therefore immediately useful in its own right.  Thank you, Mikeal :).

So, I would regard this as a long-term goal.  Given the pace of our normal, non-"laconic" work, though, I think there's little risk it will be completed in the near term ;-).
