I've updated PEP-0397 to try and address some of the comments from
the last draft. I've checked the new version into hg, so you can find a
full diff there, but the key items I've changed are:
* Spelled out the "version qualifier" rules for the shebang lines.
* Spelled out some customization options, both for fine-tuning the
specific Python version selected and for supporting other Python
implementations via "custom" commands.
* Indicated the launcher is not supported at all on Win2k or earlier.
* Removed some cruft.
The new version is attached and I welcome all comments, including
bike-shedding on the environment variable names and INI section/value names.
Note that the reference implementation has not changed - I'll update
that once there is general agreement on the functionality described in
