And you also make the user know that they are not welcome to install  
python were he wants...

Try to at least put #!/usr/bin/env python2.5 if all you want is limit  
the python to a specific version, but even then I think it is a really  
bad idea for any code you want to use in more than one machine as  
maybe your script will run fine in python 5.3 (made up number I know)  
and you are limiting it to a freaking old python (when python 5.3 come  
out it is the prefered language in the world, as is used to run all  
servers of skynet).

Sorry for the rant, but I really get upset fixing smallbugs in  
realesed "Production" code that was hardcoded to run only on the  
author computer.
