The install_compass script has some compatibility issues on platforms supported in the v4.0 branch. Specifically, some platforms are running the script under Python 2.6, and others are using the v2 toolchain Python 2.7. This is not really a problem if we make a few smart changes to the script so it's compatible with any Python version the user happens to have installed.
