For me having a cross-platform scientific python distro with python 3 would
make a big difference - because even with Python 2, individually installing
different scientific packages can be challenging.

Also with a distro it would be much easier to check if some of the
libraries one uses are available or not - I don't want keep checking this
for each library that I use, it would be easier to just check a disto's
available library list. Also with a distro I can selectively start using
Python 3 for the projects which does not depend on missing libraries.
