I've never tried it myself, but it seems one could use
"update-alternatives" to switch between the two versions of Python
under Debian.  I just found this article (See "Change python version

Not sure if that helps you (Ralph).

Anaconda modifies one's .bashrc by adding the "conda" program to the

environment's bin/ path to the $PATH variable.  AFAIK, that's all that
Anaconda seems to be doing.
