I can test this extension, I found already a solution. We used a
really old Python coming with the platform SDK and is automatically
I have to improve configure on MacOS in a way to use the system python
under /Library/Framework and ensure that we use the 2.7 version.

I can't remember the reason why we use the system Python instead of
bundling it. But using 2.7.4 brings Python support back, at least the script works.

The good thing for me is that is not bound to my 3 layer work ;-)
