I feel like I mostly see hard version equality in Python module requirements.txt files. Am I mistaken? Or is there a good reason that >= isn't more common?

I kind of thing dependency management is such a mess that the == version requirement is a helpful nudge forcing the use of isolated virtual environments, but that seems suboptimal


@xor I'm much less worried about the state of dependency management since adopting Guix. It is not ready for prime time in many areas (Python is actually one of its best) but it points so clearly towards the future that it's killed my despair about dependency management as a problem.
