Parser/ uses "/usr/bin/env python" to
find a proper python, but the script don't work
on old Pythons (at least it fails on 2.1 and

iirc, various solutions to this were discussed on
python-dev, but nobody seems to have done anything
about it.

One issue I see in is that new-style classes are
used.  I don't know if they are really necessary.  You could
try adding something like this to the top of and see
if that fixes things:

except NameError:
  class object: pass

Or maybe we just shouldn't make them new-style if that does
fix things.  I don't have an old version of python around.

Is this still a problem? Parser/ should not
normally be invoked, unless you edit the grammar
