FYI - the date is a build date; it doesn't tell you much about the 
source code base used for that Python build.  The tag to the left of it 
*may* tell you something, for example, if the build is made from an hg 
checkout or if the build is from an official tagged source tarball.  In 
this case, "default" doesn't tell much.  But if it had the hg rev used 
for the checkout, you have some indication of what it contains.  The 
official rev tags for each release are available here:
