These are both valid on Fedora 15, iirc before distributions started
shipping Python 3 they were less common though...

both of them are ok for archlinux, but I don't know which is ok for
other distributions, maybe both are not.

maybe we can make a shell script to detect the python version, and make
a symbollink to the right one in some directory, and add the directory
into env var "PATH".
Patches welcome :-)

I looked at it briefly and the work would require more time than I have
spare right now just to ensure it worked on all required distributions.

If you'd like to work on a patch I'd be happy to help test and review.

Cheers,
Joshua
