True, but irrelevant.

If Red Hat did as nbecker at fred.net suggested, this would solve the
problem with incompatible Python installs, assuming only that the
system admin did not remove the 1.5 stuff before installing 2.x.

The fact that the statement


at the top of the script does not SAY "certain modules" must be
available does not change the fact that it would work fine.

Another option would be to put


at the top of the script (creating the correct link in the process)
to make the purpose more transparent.
