Hello!

After installing py3k:72466 I found that python3 is hardlink to 
python3.1:
$ ls -lai python*
34614 -rwxr-xr-x 2 root root 3625145 2009-05-08 11:10 python3
34614 -rwxr-xr-x 2 root root 3625145 2009-05-08 11:10 python3.1
38299 -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root    1406 2009-05-08 11:10 python3.1-config
34616 lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root      16 2009-05-08 11:10 python3-config -> 
python3.1-config

I'm expecting symlink python3 pointing to python3.1(as python is symlink 
to python2.5 in my system). It's much easy to manage symlinks than 
hardlinks.
