Now, for me, adding a repository, or even downloading and compiling is not
too much of a problem provided I have the time, and the "payback" for the
extra work exceeds the "trouble" threshold for me, however, this cannot be
expected for most users.

Will pycrypto be bundled as part of the tahoe tarball? Or will the build be
able to automatically download the required files?

I don't even know where to get a copy of pycrypto because I haven't looked
for it.

I'm taking the approach of "being the user" for this feature. All the parts
have to be "in the box" or we may as well not talk about them.
