    Not that it’s the fault of the OP, but after reading that, my brain has turned to mush. The unbelievable confusion involved in distributing a Python package that links to C libraries is exactly why I avoid it. I guess if you have to do it, then maybe wheel is worth your time, but otherwise, I’d disagree.

    FWIW, I’m reasonably happy with distributing pure Python packages.

      Seconded. The only thing the article clarified for me is what a mess Python packaging currently is (and I say that as a fan).

        All this combined with python2 => python3, is making for a bit of a rough patch in python land. :/
