Hi, Olivier Gautherot

thanks for your e-mail. this is just a maintaing issue.
if you provide some human resources I'm very happy to use
python from ports tree instead.

Serious problem may be that when some cws (child work space, smallest
unit of development) wrt python is introduced, or when ports
python is updated. Then there may be a conflict, and I'd like
to ask you to fix it. Usually very easy, but sometimes very hard.
