Conda has two forms:

* a python library form, that can be included in python programs, and
* an executable form that can be run on the cli

I defined python-conda to provide the library form, whereas conda was
to provide the executable form.

My bad. I will reactivate them. Must have left that in by mistake. My apologies.

Thanks. I did not know that. I need to note it down for future newbies.

The default builds the python library form, whereas the
utils/ builds the executable version

I don't think is broken, I think the conda team built it that
way, so that one is explicit on what they want to do, at least that is
what I could gather from my reading on it. I will redefine the
packages to make it cleaner, and simply use the release/url that has
the tests to define both.

I will be sending the patch soon.
