We do not have as much incompatibility among phython (or personal preference) than
we have for diver shells - so calling phython is fine.

That said I really do not like adding phython to the required tools even though
this is ia64 specific.
This script was previously written in perl wich is more widely used.
What was the exact reason switching to phython and can we do the same in perl?
