Can user install any python lib which is available within user's profile ?

Will it be possible have facility to install libs from gthub or any other repository site and only available to user space ? This will give more flexibility to user to install their choice of libs and write algorithms based on libs.

Thanks for the idea. It has some merits, but for the time being we're going to stick with our single lib set. I have to admit, I love the idea of git deployment, as does most of our engineering team.
