A lot of the issues with Django I've noted as well. They shine on some bits, fall over on others. I know I had a fit upgrading to Python 2.5 on my Ubuntu box, too.

Oddly enough, keeping Python up to date and compatible is easier on a Win box. Usually it's just a matter of unzipping the package and dropping it in lib\site-packages. Ubuntu made me deal with all those nasty symlinks and I never knew for sure that what I had copied over would actually get used.

Something to look at is setuptools. Those libs released as .eggs are easy to maintain using setuptools.

In fact, with Turbogears you get the whole thing built on eggs. Downside: it's frankenstein's monster.
