I think there needs to be some small, well separated source packages,
for instance one for Trait, one for Envisage, on for Mayavi, and a
demand from users to distro maintainers to have these packages added to
the distros. One there starts to be a user base of, say, traits, then
distros will package it. And the user base is lagging behind because
the whole ETS it just to big to be shipped as a dependancie. But I know
you guys are working on that.
