  what is the situation with python 2.6 vs 3.1 in f12?  IIRC, f12 will
still use python 2.6 internally, but if someone wanted to start
programming in python, is it reasonable to simultaneously install
python 3.1 and let them use that for their programming, while leaving
the OS to continue using 2.6?  i can't see that causing any problems
as long as the programmers explicitly refer to the python 3.1 program
for their coding, but i just want to be sure.

  besides, if someone was looking to learn to program in python, it
would seem to make sense to just start with 3.1, no?
