I don't think that skipping tests due to a different version of python installed is acceptable. Either new python should be installed, or tests should fail, silently ignoring them is wrong.

Better yet, run-webkit-tests should work with all versions of python that are shipped on supported Mac OS X versions.

Unless someone is going to update python on buildbots, rolling out the patch again seems to be the only option.
