No, people have said many different things.
Some have suggested patching lilypond to call python2.4, depending on
python2.4, and not bothering with python-central and pyversions and
And now, it sounded as if using pyversions and such meant that I
didn't need to patch anything to call python2.4, which amazes me,
given scripts that call /usr/bin/python directly. How will that work,
because I sure don't understand that.

I don't think you understand. A workaround costs me lots of time to
get in place. I'm perfectly clear about how to go about installing a
workaround. The question is, is the work worth it?
