Starting from 2.21.0, GUB uses the embeddable package for Python:
This is official, so no "limitations" from our side.

The most severe limitation for Windows is that it's still 32-bit, so it
crashes when compiling really large scores. I tried to get it to 64-
bit, but Guile 1.8 simply doesn't work and crashes somewhere in the GC.
This is no problem with Guile 2.2, see also my thread a few months back
about my approach of native builds using few shell scripts. I've
verified that this is able to compile larger scores that our official
binaries fail on right now.
