Hi Paul,
     I just built office on my new 7.8 system. I have both Python 2 and 
Python 3 loaded. The only time I had a problem was that when I wanted to 
run Python 2 the binary I have to call is Python. If I want to run 
Python 3 the binary is python3. I was writing some scripts and didn't 
have the right binary in the opening line. IE "#!python3" I guess office 
knows which one it wants to talk with. :-)
