There are a lot of python utils distributed under the GPL. The theory
is that a non-gpl compatable python makes thse illegal to distribute
(a bit like the old KDE argument).
Personally I think this isn't a problem with interprete languages
but i don't really know enough about python to tell how
the utils "link" with the interpreter.
