PS: Note that in the glorious future, users will never use a directory
named "user_dev"... the directory was called that because in-project
virtualenv/data type installs were only meant to be for development, and
the naming of such was to make it clear, but since we've never gotten
real distro packaging yet this is the present reality, sadly!
