The above is a straw-man depiction of my point.  What I said was that just
because python is up-to-date on the system where plpython is *compiled*
does not mean it'll be up-to-date on the system where plpython is *used*.
With the increasing popularity of prebuilt packages (rpm, deb, etc),
I think it's folly to use a build-time check for this.
