Don't take this bad, but this "python thing" is staring to be a little
annoying... yes download and build/install the new
version is just "3 command", but that is fine for one machine that is
for development.. when you have to update
a couple more of PCs that are begin used to work every day.. not
really nice (not mention the servers).

Of course you already know about this but anyway, just my two cents.
