This ignores the reality of hosted applications.  When I got back from
OSCON, I found a little announcement from my ISP -- normally clueful --
that said they'd just installed Python 1.6.1 and were planning to make
it the default version in a week....

What I found particularly screwey in this situation is that they already
had 2.0 installed.  <sigh>  Well, now I have to write a long missive
detailing the issues involved with all the Python versions after 1.5.2.
