Whilst the feature is useful it is also a nuisance as it makes project 
files non-portable across platforms (where executables live in different 
locations). An alternative way to select Python version (using 
heuristics or looking in standard locations for the platform) would be nice.

Alternatively I may be doing it wrong... :-)
