I would assume/hope that it uses py2.2 since that's the Python
version they're currently compatible with.

Jython does already:
Jython 2.2a0 on java1.5.0_13 (JIT: null)
>>> import sys
(2, 2, 0, 'alpha', 0)
They should use the CPython version numbers to indicate what version
of the language specification they implement.
If they support compiled platform-specific extensions in eggs they
could append an identifier like the CPython eggs do now for compiled
extensions (e.g. Foo-1.1-py2.2-jython).
