Some relevant information for multiple python interpreters:

With Alex Gaynor's input I'm thinking that we probably have two choices
in this area:

1) Separate (sub)packages.  Similar to what python2, python3, and python26
   in EPEL5  stacks are doing.  Precedent wise, this likely makes the most sense.

2) Move to something like Debian does but maybe with less symlinks and
   maybe build-time instead of run-time .pyc creation.  dmalcolm rejected
   the Debian approach as too hacky.  To me it's a bit too complex for what
   it enables.  But perhaps the implementation could be simplified and made
   suitable for use in Fedora.  This would be a big departure from the past
   and would affect the main python stack as well as alternate interpreters
   so it is a much bigger and time consuming task to enable than the first
