Installing many packages

    I've got a whole bunch of package dependencies in the programs I develop.
    Mainly, they are generic libraries/utilities I've written that are needed
    by most of the programs I write. The biggest problem I've had with
    python's packaging system is that I end up needing to install every library
    package on each machine I install my programs on. It's even worse when I
    go through an upgrade...

    Is there any way to create something like a "meta-package"? ie, can bundle
    a whole bunch of packages together under a single installer? I'm working
    on both Windows and Mac so the tools need to support both platforms. Does
    anything exist for this purpose?

    Thanks,

    Greg Fortune
