That's true because Sage considers itself a distribution rather than a
package. But it's possible to pick the distribution apart and build just
the Python package "sage". In fact, various Linux distros package Sage
that way. The reason for it being a distribution is mainly that it has a
huge number of dependencies (many of them not Python), so it wouldn't be
possible to do "pip install sage" anyway.

That's just a matter of waiting a few hours.

Those two are pretty much equivalent. If you really want just the
latter, you can run "make sageruntime" in the Sage root.

I feel like the bar for this PEP is being raised all the time. First,
you ask for an application benchmark and I provided an application
benchmark. Now you complain that my application is not suitable. Why
don't you just believe my timings?
