If we assume many or most Atomic Host users will be using Ansible, I
think that's a good batteries-included call. Interestingly, CoreOS has
_no_ version of Python, and I've seen two approaches for dealing with
this: using ansible 'raw' mode to pull down a python interpreter into
/home/core/bin, or else to use the toolbox-container — which,
awesomely, is Fedora-based and contains Python.
