Currently, based on what is reported in the release notes, it would appear that the x86 Python kits are still in the field testing phase :

Ah, one of the big missing things preventing ports during the old CLP is available now.
Well, it will be good to have Monty Python now.

Does this actually require the update package to be installed on 9.2-2? If so no one with the VMDK can test this.
