Now, I'll admit that we have very few lilypond users on OpenServer

It sounds like there is no ideal solution, but AFAIK Python is shipped
with all GUB binaries except MacOS X.

I think users should be free to install their programs wherever they
want, if the environment knows what the logged in user wants to run.

Why shouldn't I have my preferred python in PREFIX=$HOME? And other
users in their home dir themselves?

You can have your preferred python wherever you want.  But, as
John pointed out (I had forgotten!), lilypond-book will ignore
your python and use the python that is included in GUB.  This way,
the python scripts are executed using the python version that they
were developed / tested on.

The only problem is that we don't distribute python for OSX, and
OSX has its own issues with python.  I'm not certain /why/ we
don't ship python on OSX, but I *am* certain that it's too
complicated for me to fix at the moment.

That's a much better explanation. Thanks.

I don't quite like to have all the apps shipping their own favorite interpreter version... Why not force a version in the path? like
#!/usr/bin/env python2.4

Nevertheless, I can work on that issue concerning the mac osx lilypond. I have one tiger ppc and one leopard intel, so i'll check compat for both OSes and architectures.

Can someone point me to the code's development branch?
