The idea I've came is that there are no silver bullets and issues like
this can't be effectively and obviously solved within heterogeneous
environments (like where sugar is using, e.g. several distros and
several releases of the same distro) just by e.g. bundling all time.

The way I'm implementing right now is supporting full life cycle
of activities. So, it is not obvious and fast. But what I've already
done(it will be ready to test at the end of this week) could be used
in some way. It will looks like, you are add additional keys to your
activity.info file including "requires = nltk-python" and using "sweets
push" command, send it to bazaar.sl.o. If everything is ok, users can
attach repositories (for at least for fedora and debian/ubuntu) from
bazaar.sl.o and install your activity (and all deps) from native
