Steve Dower added the comment:
Changing the default install directory in a maintenance release is not okay.
Users who are concerned about security can change the install directory, and
bugs that arise as a result will be considered on their own merits.
Alternatively, you can obtain Python 2.7 from one of the companies who maintain
a distribution (such as Continuum Analytics). Some of them default to a secure
stage: test needed -> resolved
versions: -Python 2.7
