ok so this probably isn't what I should be doing, but it definitely isn't what python should be doing

I can't believe this is legal python. Not only does it compile it runs without exception

# This script installs to /usr/local only. To install elsewhere you can just
# untar https://github.com/mxcl/homebrew/tarball/master anywhere you like.
#the first thing it does is define a bunch of methods to make things easier further on.
#That makes for sorta uncomfortable reading, since sometimes you can see *what* it's doing,
#but not *why* it's doing it. If you're mystified as to the purpose of something, go look
#at how it's used and see if that illuminates matters.
#Terminals use numbered control codes to indicate colors. It is inconvenient to try
