That is my point. We can use a recent version of python since I suppose
recent versions support the same platforms as older version (probably
even more). For all platforms that do not have python, we'll just
recover all build instructions into a script.

The '-n' flag is standard in BBv2. Flushing everything to a script does
not need to be supported explicitly, all platforms support redirection
of the standard output.
