Great slides and a great activity.  I totally agree that we need to teach
our students to use real tools they can use sustainably throughout their

I am developing a package and a bundle for people in Chinese Studies and
neighbouring fields.  This needs a slightly different set of packages and
settings so I don't think a one-size-fits-all approach would be productive
here, neither on the Emacs level, nor on the level of something like jmax. 
I think being able to have something like

$> pip --freeze > requirements   and
$> pip install -r <requirements

might provide both a flexible and extensible way to maintain meta packages. 
Or is there already a better way in the Emacs universe?

All the best,
