I don't know the details here, but i strongly prefer to have an
installation process that does not need python; i might settle for
a process that will work with any python.

For Dock 6.9 I'll be resynchronizing Dock and AmberTools. Dock uses
a kernel of Ambertools that includes antechamber et al., sff, tleap,
and maybe (probably not) nab. Again the details are as yet unknown,
but all four of those are not python programs, and i do
not want Dock users to have to deal with python.

If you need help supporting two unix shells (OMG 2 !) then i can help.
