we need those libraries installable or provided as a python package.
Using xstatic solves this for us in a very nice way.

I must admit, I'd prefer those (javascript) libraries installable as 
(rpm) packages, but that makes it even more complicated e.g gate. It
seems, many folks here try to avoid distro packages at all.
