Because my last patch [1] had some problems running under python-2.3 
(and it looks, that I'm not the only one having this problem [2] [3]), I
wrote some scripts which compile different versions of python.
Additionally these scripts do a syntax check of all python code using
these different python versions.
This patch makes it easy to test the python code for different versions of
python: only the LD_LIBRATY_PATH and PATH must be adapted.
Currently supported: 2.3.7, 2.4.6, 2.5.4, 2.6.2, 3.1

Please consult the 'tests/README' how to use. (It's mostly a 'cd tests
&& make').

Kind regards

Andreas Florath

P.S.: First results:
line 10
    from os import path.basename
SyntaxError: invalid syntax

for all versions of python. (Even after fixing this syntax error, there
is at least another one.) Sorry, but currently I'm not able to send a
patch for this, because I have major problems running the xm-test suite.

N.B.: Second result: python-3.1 does not work at the moment (227 Syntax
errors, mostly all because of the 'print arg' vs. 'print(arg)', and
'except Exception, e:' vs. 'except Exception as e:'). It looks that it
might be possible to fix all the 'print's - but the new exception syntax
is only implemented in python 2.6 (and AFAIK not in 2.3, 2.4 or 2.5).
