Sorry, I just need to correct a misstatement I made in the above:  
PyLint isn't compiled for that version of Python...  The issue is that 
the #!/usr/bin/python may be selecting a Python version that isn't 
compatible with your Python Path.  This should only be a problem if it's 
a finding an extension module that pylint happens to import as part of 
its normal operations, such as something in the standard library.  As I 
think I noted before PyLint doesn't actually execute any code so it 
won't be importing your modules for real.

Please let me know if this still isn't clear.
