I need to stay in sink with the rest of the company which is still
using 2.6 flavors. There was some investigation into going to Python 3
but not enough of the libraries we use were available. I'll install
2.6.6. I don't think the security stuff really effects me. I think it
is strange to release a security update but not really expect people
to use it.
