I dealt with having multiple instances of Python by placing the newer 
version in /usr/local.  It all seems to work without any problem.

Hah.  If those packages were available, I would not have wasted any time 
to compile them by myself.  :)  Creating custom packages is a bit beyond 
my skill level, I think...or at least I've never had the time to spend 
trying to do one by myself.  If someone wanted to help me with creating 
rpms from the tarballs, I'd be happy to re-do the proposed wiki document.
