Building a new machine for NodeJS. Installing Gulp-sass has a dependency on node-sass - which has a dependency on node-gyp - which has a dependency ON PYTHON!!!

and.... python 2.7, as it doesn't support 3.0

Doomed - We're all doomed.

    *cough* https://nixos.org/nix *cough* solves all these dependency problems like a magic unicorn :D
    no for real, its a declarative package manager, usable on every distro in addition to the native one.
