But when you try to upgrade Python with the same minor version number
(e.g. 2.3->2.3.1) the installation processes fails because it tries to
compile all .py files and the it fails on these. The problem is hard
to find because the compilation process does not abort immidiately but
only after all pending file are handeled, so you have to scroll
through lots of output
