I think Titus was referring to non-helpful platforms such as
hpux/aix/cray/weird mainframes that are now stacked up in his office,
that don't have such nice package management.
I would imagine that getting python on said packages might be easier than java?
My concerns for snakebite would be:
* Who really cares about those platforms? From what Guido said, he
doesn't. I don't think students do.
* security. You really want virtualization to solve that problem.
Unless you want to throw students at it. (poor students....)
