These Python scripts require Python 2.4, which is not provided in 10.3
and 10.4; ideally we should cross-compile Python and ship it in GUB
binaries, but it could be a nightmare to make it possible (I cannot even
compile current GUB right now, so I'm far from being able to do this
within one or 2 weeks).

The only solution on short term is asking users to install Python 2.4 or
2.5 manually; IIRC Python scripts and/or their wrappers also need to be
edited to make them call the right Python, don't they?
