Okay, I've spent four or five hours trying to figure out how to get Python 2.2.1 installed with no success
at all. Every attempt is met with a long string of unmet dependencies. If I have to upgrade the blasted
machine from RedHat 6.2, which works perfectly well in this context, in order to move forware with MailMan
I'm going to have to rethink the whole idea.

I did find a RedHat 6.2 RPM for  Python, but reports:
error: failed dependencies:
        libcrypto.so.2 is needed by python2-2.2.1-1
        libexpat.so.0 is needed by python2-2.2.1-1
        libssl.so.2 is needed by python2-2.2.1-1

Are those likely to be in one of the other Python RPMs, like python2-devel or python2-tools? Or will those
just expose six hundred more dependencies?
