Hmm ...

I don't think I understand very well what you are meaning here:

If you are using a pre-packaged python to build AOO, then the AOO
embedded python version is of no concern. If you are building the
internal python in AOO then it's in your best interest to have
something at least as up to date as the one that regularly comes
with your OS.

I don't really care very much about the python version used in BSD/Linux
/MacOS as it is likely users in those systems will have an up-to-date 
python version. Windows, on the other hand, depends on the specific 
python we are delivering.
