Kevin: what's your opinion on changing PythonLauncher to check if it is the default action for opening python files and warning about that? 

What about refusing to run when Python Launcher is the default action for python files?

Users would still be able to run python files from the Finder by using the "Open with" menu, or by selecting Python Launcher through the Get Info dialog.

This would seriously reduce the risks w.r.t. accidentally running python scripts.

(Removing 2.7 because it is too late to change 2.7 behavior)

versions:  -Python 2.7
