Can it be assumed that some python scripts can work with any version of 
python we provide?

Maybe we can add some package variable like: ANY_PYTHON_IS_OKAY=yes and 
then PYTHONBIN could just be non-versioned ${LOCALBASE}/bin/python.

Thsi would help so changing python versions installed wouldn't make us 
have to rebuild packages needing it.

And then we still need the non-versioned ${LOCALBASE}/bin/python 
installed though.
