Comment (by stromnov):


 Runtime requirements


 Pillow is the friendly PIL fork

 Pillow is a //partial// drop-in replacement for PIL with many backward
 incompatible improvements (like a several major version bumps).
 Unfortunately, they are occupying the same python module namespace and so
 they cannot be installed both at the same time. In the wild (outside of
 MacPorts ecosystem) they often coexist side-by-side in separate virtualenv
 environments (as well as different versions of the same library).
