I asked a question about this in the Vision discussion list,
and according to the answer (given below) it shouldn't be too difficult:.
I tried this solution, but couldn't get it working,
because there seems something wrong with my tcl-package,
and now I remember, I have seen that before ;-)


Vision can be easily extracted from the MGLTools package but it requires some additional packages.
MGLTools packages list critical and non-critical dependencies at the end of their __init__.py file.

Critical dependencies are the packages that are required for Vision to work at all.

Non critical dependencies will not prevent the package from working however, some functionality will
be missing.

The latest release of MGLTools (1.4.6) runs with python 2.4

It needs some 3rd party packages: Pmw, Numeric (23.8 or 24.2)

Inside MGLTools, the critical dependencies for Vision are:
Vision, NetworkEditor, mglutil, Support

an easy solution is to move thees 4 packages inside

then you can launch python
import Vision
