[scribus] problem importing python modules to script

Thanks for taking a look at this.  Here's what I put into the console
(straight out of the Google api sample file.)  This works if I run it from
the Python command line interpreter.



  from xml.etree import ElementTree

except ImportError:

  from elementtree import ElementTree

import gdata.calendar.data

import gdata.calendar.client

import gdata.acl.data

import atom

import getopt

import sys

import string

import time


And the Scribus console returns this:

'Scribus Python Console\n\nThis is a standard Python console with some
\nknown limitations. Please consult the Scribus \nScripter documentation for
futher information. '

File "<console>", line 5

import gdata.calendar.data


SyntaxError: invalid syntax

Traceback (most recent call last):

File "<console>", line 1, in ?

ImportError: No module named gdata.calendar.client

Traceback (most recent call last):

File "<console>", line 1, in ?

ImportError: No module named gdata.acl.data

Traceback (most recent call last):

File "<console>", line 1, in ?

ImportError: No module named atom

So this caused me to go look at versioning, and found that Scribus is using
Python 2.3, rather than going after the latest Python 2.7 install.
