Virtualenv is not a hard requirement but is convenient. I believe that 
we already have instructions that point out that activating a virtualenv 
is optional. I think we will just have to present this information to 
OSX users to allow them to make their own choice.

If we can avoid wasting time in creating a full installer, this would be 
a very good thing. I believe that we are doing enough by providing 
appropriate instructions for successful installation and good basic 
initial configuration.
