Just joke.

I doubt why the bitbake need python2.x but just use /bin/env python. I
think If it need a specific version python, it should write it in the
shebang. e.g. /bin/env python2.6
I looked at this but not enough of the distributions we care to support
have a python2.6 binary:

$ /usr/bin/env python2
Python 2.7.1 (r271:86832, Apr 12 2011, 16:16:18)
[GCC 4.6.0 20110331 (Red Hat 4.6.0-2)] on linux2
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
$ /usr/bin/env python2.6
/usr/bin/env: python2.6: No such file or directory

I'd love to support Arch more thoroughly but they aren't making it easy
for us ;-)
