Well, the digits are there if they are there in the name when that's actually what is in argv[0], so as long as that's the name the binary is actually installed under I don't think it will break anything.  I presume the same applies to the abi flags but haven't checked.

That said, I don't know for sure that progname is the right thing to change; I haven't looked through the code to see how sys.executable is generated or if there is anything else GetPythonName is used for.

Hmm.  I suppose there could be an issue if Python is invoked through a wrapper...I know Gentoo does that, so I've added Arfrever to nosy to see if he has an opinion.
