Thanks; thought so, but wanted to make sure.

If your concern is about how the shipped scripts are executed, they all
begin with a “#!BPY” shebang, and Blender runs them with the interpreter
it was compiled against. That explains why the submitter of #477761 got
a syntax error: his python2.5 — fancy “foo if bar else baz” — script was
executed by python2.4, against which Blender was compiled until now;
although his python version is 2.5.2-1.
