Wow, I didn't realize today was its anniversary :-) No, this isn't the
recommended install of Python Scripts, but it is the closest thing currently

PythonMethod and PythonScripts are independent Products, providing objects
with different meta-types. They can be installed side-by-side perfectly
safely, and both Python Methods and Python Scripts can be used at the same
time, and even together.
I haven't tried installing PythonScripts in a pre-2.3 Zope, but I have no
reason to expect that it would fail, except in one feature: Since pre-2.3
Zopes don't support the __render_with_namespace__ protocol, you would always
have to pass parameters explicitly when calling from DTML, and wouldn't be
able to bind the caller's namespace.
If you want to give it a shot, the worst thing that I would expect it to do
is fail and produce error messages when you try to create or use Python
Scripts. Want to write a Howto? ;-)
