P: n/a

Python is distributed under its own license, not the GPL: see
http://www.python.org/2.4.2/license.html for details. I've just skimmed
it, and it looks like you're fine as long as you include the Python
license agreement and copyright notice.

GPL compatible means "can be used as a component in GPL software".
It doesn't imply that the Python licence is GPL equivalent in
the way that it restricts the licence for software that includes
it as a component.
