Has the following idea ever been discussed ?

is it possible/desirable to have the Python environment variables with version
number ?

I have run into problems with that because I have version 1.5 embeded in an
application and I use PYTHONHOME to tell this interpreter where to find it's
common .py files and I run 1.5.2b1 as my current python version. The PYTHONHOME
environment variable set for the embeded interpreter created quite a confusion
for 1.5.2b1.
