In general, (and in this case) the answer is system-specific.
You need to explain (A) what operating system, and (B) what you
mean by multiple Python versions.

For example, for Windows 2K/XP, As long as you try for only
distinct major versions (2.2.x, 2.3.x, 2.4.x).  There should
not be a problem.  The primary issues are where (and how) does
your system get to the python files.
