 $ python -c 'import sys; print sys.executable'

 $ sudo rainbow-easy bug python -c "import sys; print sys.executable"
 SyntaxError: invalid syntax

 $ sudo rainbow-easy bug python
 >>> import sys; print sys.executable

 The Python docs say:

     A string giving the name of the executable binary for the Python
 interpreter, on systems where this makes sense.

 This is using the Ubuntu/Lucid universe rainbow package.
