Since python is used by system utils, but scripts don't specify the
version, it is very difficult for a user to upgrade to python2.0 without
breaking system utils.  If you simply install python2.0 distr system utils
break, because RH adds LOTS of python packages that are not part of the
standard python2.0 distr.

3 solutions:
1) Make python2.0 standard
2) Put #!python1.5 at the start of all system scripts
3) Make it easy to get all the RH added python packages that would be
needed to upgrade python

IMHO, you should do both 1, 2, and 3.

Reproducible: Didn't try

Python 2.x will be included in the next Major release (.0) of Red Hat Linux. 
Until then our binary compatibility rules prevent us from deploying it.  The
next release of Red Hat Linux (7.1) will have a python2 package on the
Powertools CD and /usr/bin/python2.  This is part of our Python 2.x migration
