I see one can install multiple versions of python but how does it work?
calling python in a shell always point to just one executable, right ?
One would have to specify the full path to python to use a specific version ?

I don't know how Debian handles this but 'apt-get install python' on Suse will 
remove the old version before installing the new one (I think).
Otherwise it complains about conflicting libraries.

It certainly is nice to keep backwards compatibility. My guess is that by the 
time we deliver Gnumed to the public python as well as other packages will be 
well beyond their current versions. Does anyone still use i.e. KDE3.0 ?

Time will tell :-)
