That should say "Python2.(4-6) to C++ compiler".

I do not want to pick on Mark, who I think is doing great work, but I 
find it annoying when third-party developers use the generic 'Python' to 
refer to undisclosed older versions of Python.

While Mark never reveals this crucial information anywhere on this page,

he does specify versions in the first sentence of this page. That is 
much better than some other projects.
