Beeing able to use python to specify the installers behaviour (like
checking what files to install on different systems, decrypting
archives, etc.) is for me very attractive. AND, I have functional and
well tested version on python 2.3. Hence, the  best options seems at
the moment to be: keep using python 2.3.
