Actually, with RHEL and CentOS 7 out the door, I believe we could potentially just rip the whole mess out of the upstream project.

Slavek, this is about a hack Dave and I put into bdist_rpm to get Python 3 packages building correctly on RHEL 6. I believe the underlying issue with not specifying the interpreter version has been fixed for 7,so can we just get rid of the workaround now? Or at least double check the non-portability issue only affects 6 and close this as wontfix?
