I know but this is too much reinventing the wheel to my taste. I think
the entirety of Python should be left alone to manage using pip. Pip
should take care of the signatures, checksums, etc. It is unrealistic
to expect a port for every Python package. Is it supposed to be the
case for every language which has its own package manager? R? MATLAB?
Go? Julia? Rust? NodeJS? FreeBSD has enough trouble providing working
WiFi drivers to be too orthodox about external package managers.
Managing "close to the metal" packages and generally packages for
languages not having a dedicated package manager is the best approach.
I cannot tell FreeBSD users what to do but I decided not to support
this. I hope other advantages of the software will convince them to
try it. Especially when the "Infrastructure as Code" bit starts
appearing hopefully next year. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Kind regards,
