I currently have Python 2.54 and Python 3.1 installed on a Windows Vista
machine. 2.5 is my default version.  I was going to try Greg Malcom's Python
Koans <http://bitbucket.org/gregmalcolm/python_koans/wiki/Home> that Jeff
presented at the last meeting.  It works with Python 2.6 and 3.1.  I can't
remember (or find searching) how to easily switch between the two versions
of Python on my machine. I will still be using 2.5 95% of the time, but want
to jump into 3.1 to do the Koans, and then jump back into 2.5 for everything
else.  Is it as easy as opening my shell up in the 3.1 folder and specifying
the python 3.1 executable?
