It seems we are talking about different things: I proposed that (in the 
cases where your proposed option works) not only the unversioned python 
path is ensured when using the default Python, but also the versioned 
python path is used when using a non-default Python (e.g. for a project 
where Python 2.6 is not supported, built for a system where Python 2.6 
is the default compiler).

Too bad.

Even if you cannot solve it, please do post more details about it, in 
case others reading this might have ideas.
