Well, that's a major issue.
Keep in mind that the basic problem with Python is crosscompiling it.
Using Python and Mercurial from pkgsrc doesn't help with this; the
effective result would be that if you're running on $SLOWPLATFORM you
couldn't check out or update either NetBSD or pkgsrc before you
compiled Python locally. This is a bit of a problem.
