the license is pretty clear on this: "Permission to use, copy,
modify, and distribute this software and its documentation
for any purpose and without fee is hereby granted" etc.

according to http://www.python.org/doc/Copyright.html,
some lawyers seem to think that "a, b, c, and d" means "a
or b or c or d, but not any other combination", but the
clarification on that page should be enough for your own
company lawyers (if they object, get a second opinion ;-)
