Adding Python as a prerequisite to even checking out the files?  No way.

At that point, we have awk (100kb download at most), perl and python all
depending on exactly what you are trying to do.  This isn't overkill?

On the other hand, perhaps it's time to start distributing .py equivilants
of the various .pl examples/tools in httpd - permitting users either/or.

FYI - yes I've become a huge fan of python, at least once psyco is added :)
But it sure violates any principal of KISS.
