This is a solved problem.  It's my understanding (based on earlier
posts to this list) that openmoko will have ipkg, which does package
management and dependency tracking.  So when you put your first python
application on, ipkg will conclude you need python.  When you put your
second on, it will conclude you've alrady got python.
