It looks like epg first fixed this problem here:

http://svn.collab.net/viewvc/svn?view=revision&revision=26876

But then that change was removed as part of the move to only support Python 2.4

http://svn.collab.net/viewvc/svn?view=revision&revision=35612

So we think with that change added back, we can just trick the build
into using Python 2.2 for the bindings.
