Well, the digits are there if they are there in the name when that's actually what is in argv, so as long as that's the name the binary is actually installed under I don't think it will break anything. I presume the same applies to the abi flags but haven't checked.
That said, I don't know for sure that progname is the right thing to change; I haven't looked through the code to see how sys.executable is generated or if there is anything else GetPythonName is used for.
Hmm. I suppose there could be an issue if Python is invoked through a wrapper...I know Gentoo does that, so I've added Arfrever to nosy to see if he has an opinion.
