One possible idea (which might come handy also for other purposes) is to use
virtualenv, the problem is that I don't find any example where it's
actually used from
other python scripts, without an actual shell interaction.
I think something like this would be good:
virtualenv.create_environment(venv, site_packages=False, clear=False)
e = Egg(path.join('deps', 'app'))
But I have to find a way to tell my code to pass to the Popen the
anyone already did it?
