We found that adding

# MAGIC as specified in Python/import.c
# 60717  ( YEAR - 1995 ) + MONTH  + DAY (little endian followed by "\r\n"
0       belong          0x2ded0d0a      python (2.2) compiled
# 60202  ( YEAR - 1995 ) + MONTH  + DAY (little endian followed by "\r\n"
0       belong          0x2aeb0d0a      python (2.1) compiled

0       belong          0x87c60d0a      python (2.0) compiled

will help.
