Great article!
There's still one question that bothers me though. If the job were to write a web crawler in Python, what would be the most common way of sending the crawler to the client? Do they expect a package installable with pip?

Hey, good question. It will depend on a client, some clients will just want the crawled data delivered and don't care for the script, some clients will require a python files, for others it doesn't matter, in those cases I usually make the crawler an executable, or attach short instruction how to install python and packages to run it since its simple enough.
