One idea could be to bundle a script which will try to find a suitable
version.

So main install script would have the following hash bang:

#!python_wrapper.sh


And python_wrapper would look something like:

    PYTHON="0"
    ### First try plain python
    if hash python 2>/dev/null;
    then
      PYVER=$(python -c "import sys;print(sys.version)")
      if [[ $PYVER == *2.* ]]
      then
        PYTHON="python"
      fi
    fi

    ### If plain python is not v2, then try with explicit versions
    if [[ $PYTHON == 0 ]]
    then
      if hash python2.7 2>/dev/null;
      then
        PYTHON="python2.7"
      fi
    fi

    ### And so on for other possible versions and executable names


But of course, the correct course of action is to support python3. This
is a quick and dirty way of making sure that python2 is used though.
