pythonz command [options] version
+Before building Python, you might want to install some optional dependencies, for functionality that
+is often expected to be included in a Python build (it can be a bummer to discover these missing and
+have to rebuild your python setup). These include the following, ordered by (very roughly guessed)
+probability that you will need them (names may differ in your system package manager)::
+
+ libz-dev (or zlib)
+ libbz2-dev
+ libreadline-dev
+ libsqlite3-dev
+ libncurses5-dev
+ libgdbm-dev
+
Install some pythons::
pythonz install 2.7.3
