  I think these are two very strong arguments in favour.  I note that we
already (appear to?) do the same for perl.

  (/me remembers back to the insane gyrations I had to go through a couple of
years ago when I had to setup makefiles for my clients who wanted to invoke
them from cmd.exe using --win32 and have them work on systems that could have
either cygwin python or active python or both and they could come in any order
in the path.... <shudder>)

Can't think of a witty .sigline today....
