You can install python Maemo 2.0. It works.
There you go, today in the maemo-developers mailing list :
We from INdT (Nokia Institute of Technology -- Brazil) have the pleasure to announce the new version of Python for Maemo, for Maemo SDK 2.1 ("Scirocco") and SDK 3.0 ("Bora"). Highlights of this version:
* Support for N800 device/software (SDK 3.0)
* Language updated to Python 2.5
* Updated bindings
* Added bindings to new Hildon widgets
* Improved OSSO bindings
* Project home has moved to Garage.maemo.org.
The new project page is http://pymaemo.garage.maemo.org. There you can find directions about repositories, installation on SDK/device etc. The release notes for this version can be found at http://pymaemo.garage.maemo.org/pymaemo25_releasenotes.html.
We encourage everybody to try the software and report bugs/improvement requests.

I am now ready to begin developing for the N800. Can you give a brief flow-chart of how it works? I assume that a Python compiler/IDE is installed on a desktop Linux Box (I have PCLinuxOS) and the packaged programs are then loaded to the N800 either directly or through a repository. How does pymaemo fit into this? Do I have to flash the N800 with a developer image?
