Success is about speed and efficiency

Install as many python modules as you like - in virtual environments

su
easy_install virtualenv

And create your virtualenv :

mkdir ~/venv
virtualenv --no-site-packages ~/venv/django-cooking
source ~/venv/django-cooking/bin/activate

Now you can install a whole bunch of stuff to that virtual python environment:

easy_install django psycopg2 django-extensions werkzeug south reportlab pypdf html5lib pisa pil

When using virtualenv, you should also consider using virtualenvwrapper! It provides the command line tools mkvirtualenv and workon to switch between virtual Python environments in no time.
