Currently only for Python 2, and only for the system installed versions 
(the ABI stability of python leaves a lot to be desired, we've seen 
crashes with non-system installed versions).

There's a patch for supporting python 3 which was submitted to this 
mailing list about a month ago (should be not hard to find in the 
archive). Did a superficial code review and it should work, but the 
patch wasn't included yet because it'd need validation with lots of 
python versions (down to 2.3). If anyone wants to give us a hand with 
the testing it'd speed up adoption of the patch.
