Is there any specific reason not to use virtualenvs for aurweb deployments?
We have a few python services, some use repo packages, some use virtualenv's.

Both have pros and cons, but our heaviest stuff, which is archweb, uses a venv,
because it has a bunch of deps and also because we can't always update the django
version without issues.

I never used fastapi, but I presume there might be breaking changes between versions.
We shouldn't postpone upgrading the aurweb server because of this. If some TU wants
to maintain it, fine. But, for the actual deployment, I wouldn't use repo packages.
