pycentral [-h] [-v] <cmd> [<cmd options>] [<args>]
provides support for installing python modules independent
of the current installed Python version and handling
byte-compilation and -removal tasks in installation scripts.
Limit the output to the version numbers of the python versions.

/etc/python/debian_config is searched for the attribute overwrite-
local. If set to 1, or True, existing files in
/usr/lib/pythonX.Y/*-packages are overwritten with symbolic links to
the pycentral install area. The default is to abort the installation of
a package, when files already exist. This behaviour may be useful, when
python libraries were manually installed into this directory. The
attribute byte-compile can be set to a comma separated list of the val-
ues standard and optimze to indicate how files should be byte-compiled.
