Can we even avoid python in the base install anyways, all of RedHat's
tools seem to be written in it. If that's the case python will already
be present in 99% of all FC setups, and then I REALLY don't see the
problem, it's 20 megs, only 20 megs and it would buy us a nice init
system and Seth goodness.
