Well, if we detect Python 2.6, then we should install to the KDE prefix by
default. The problem then is, of course, the surprise factor: if someone
upgrades, suddenly KDE starts installing to the wrong path.
I recommend, instead, that we default to the KDE prefix and, if Python 2.5
or earlier is detected, we print a big warning at the end of the cmake
run, saying that you will not be able to run and that you should set the
PYTHON_SITE_PACKAGES_DIR variable instead. Even make it a fatal error.
