Python and ESRI (GIS)

The following notice about Geographic Info systems posts appeared in my in-box:
Research Associate - GIS and Health (2 Posts) Department of Geography,
University of Canterbury, New Zealand
The Department of Geography, University of Canterbury is looking to
appoint two GIS Research Associates. The successful candidates with be
expected to contribute towards three separate projects, all
investigating aspects of GIS & Health.
Candidates should have at least an MSc in GIS or a related field, have
knowledge of spatial analysis methods, and have technical skills in
ESRI's ArcGIS software, preferably supported by Python or AML.
It seems that Python skills are now highly desirable for GIS people using ESRI
products - and ESRI has a major slice of the GIS software market. ESRI seems to be
positioning Python as a replacement for its own proprieatry scripting language
(Avenue)? Is that correct?

Incidentally, my expert sources emphasize to me that GIMP still
has a long way to go before it effectively rivals Photoshop.

I've been told that too. Maybe because I'm not into the graphics area
think it works pretty well :-) There are other tools such as SodiPodi,

In fact, we might already have tools to do everything Photoshop does.
The difference is that we try to keep it simple (KISS) and bundle
several specialized tools, while Photoshop tries to be a swiss army
knife, bundling everything together.

I'm hearing more the FUD of "I want to use Linux but then I have to use
one thousand commands and programs to get the same results I get with
<proprietary program> on <proprietary OS>".

I have Python 2.1 / PythonWin 2.1 installed on my machine because I need it for use with ESRI's ArcGIS Desktop software, but I want to play with a more recent version of Python. Is it safe to install more than one version of Python / PythonWin on the same machine? I don't want the latest release to wipe out the old one.
