PEP 704 – Require virtual environments by default for package installers

Source: Hacker News

Article note: The degree to which Python has completely fucked the packaging/distribution/library management/namespacing problem and keeps getting tolerated is always sort of stunning to me. Go and rust have "some uglyness" like all languages in the modern dung-beetle context (and node ...well, I thought node was a joke about anti-patterns not a real language for the first few years I heard about it), but python's "do the wrong thing by default, and have a confusing profusion of slightly less wrong things" is an anti-achievement.
