Okay, #python people. I've been reading about #virtualenv and I totally get it in the context of development. What I don't get is distribution. If I finish building a command line app in python and want to share it, would everyone that wants to use it have to set up a virtualenv on their end to do so? And what about in context of a cron job? Is it normal to script a wrapper that launches it in virtualenv context? What am I missing here?

@tomasino also, I *think* there are some external solutions (besides Docker) to distributing Python code packed in a binary along with all the dependencies, but I haven't looked into them for ages, can't help :-)
