If you install python support by downloading the NBMs and installing in NB6.5 via tools->plugins. Now python project is
an option for a new project but you are unable to actually create one, exception is thrown.
java.util.concurrent.ExecutionException: java.io.IOException: Cannot run program
"/Users/nshanny/.netbeans/6.5beta/jython-2.5/bin/jython" (in directory "/Users/nshanny/.netbeans/6.5beta"): error=13

Exception throwen in Netbeans.
The bug here is that the Update client does not preserve execute permissions on bits. If you install Jythan via the
plugin center, none of the scripts in Jythin/bin will be executable.
For JRuby I added a workaround for this: My module restored method goes and chmods everything executable.
See ruby.platform's RubyInstallation.getInstance().ensureExecutable();
(which is called from ruby.project's module installer.)
The reason is wont create a project is that it needs a platform. it cannot register the bundled jython because the nbm
turns off execution.
The platform manager was truncating part of the path to enable execution
