ACK, thanks! We can now use python for the next version of ovirt-config-* scripts, current ones are taking shell scripting to the limit.
Pushed with the additional removal of .pyo files b/c optimized bytecode doesn't help much and we save 2MB.
Side-effect is that python -O doesn't work, but that's not much used anyway - on my machine I found -O used only by /usr/bin/alacarte and /usr/bin/rpmlint scripts.
