I tested the SharpSvn build environment (which builds subversion directly from subversion) on several systems and found systems with .py mapped and other systems with python in the path. On some other system just running a .py file just opened notepad with the .py file. (Not a very friendly action of a build system just trying to configure subversion).

(I fixed this by looking for python.exe with a testfile and if python.exe is not found try just running the .py file.)

I don't think the build system should assume that .py is mapped in one place /and/ python.exe is in the path in another place; as a current installation of Activestate python does not map the .py extension for running.
And one of the other python installations I tried does not add python.exe to the path (not sure which release this is).

We should choose a single method; and we probably did by running python.exe from the other places.
