Yes, indeed.  "Don't touch /usr/bin/python" is an ancient Red Hat and
Centos bugaboo going back to Python 1.5.2 at least (never used RHEL,
but since Centos suffers from it, I suppose older versions of RHEL do,
too).  It's interesting (not a criticism, I really mean "interesting")
that you had to learn from experience, Laura.

Is this true of recent Fedora, even today?
