I see the new Python load is also V8+ now, so apparently there has
been a change.  I realize there has been some sort of split between
Blastwave CSW and Opencsw, probably revolving around this very issue
from what I've been able to discern.  I suppose this means I need
to go over to Opencsw for my old systems.  Sorry to bother you all.
