Sure. I'm not implying we should try to fix gen-make.py, or anything.

Rather, package maintainers should behave nicely, to do this.

    $ ls -l python*
    .... python -> python2
    .... python1-> python1.5.3
    .... python1.5.3*
    .... python2 -> python2.0
    .... python2.0*

Emacs does that, Tcl does that, I don't see why Python couldn't do that.
I don't imagine there are many packages out there that require Python
1.5, but can't work quite well with Python 2.x.

Anyway, this is off-topic here.
