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 
install directory.

stage: test needed -> resolved
versions:  -Python 2.7
