 Replying to [comment:19 martinl]:
 > > "system" Python is sufficient and not try to use the bundled Python
 (i.e. don't set PYTHONHOME, set GRASS_PYTHON to point to the system
 version, etc).
 > But then we will have problem with other python packages (GRASS
 dependecies) which are installed through osgeo4w environment as `python-
 matplotlib` or `python-numpy`, right? Version of "system" python will be
 most probably different from the python version available in osgeo4w

 Add-on packages don't normally care about the minor version, so a package
 built for 2.7 should work with 2.7.<anything>.

 This doesn't apply to sre_*.py; modules which are part of the base Python
 distribution don't expect to be used with anything other than the exact
 Python version of which they are part.

 > Right, when I launch `python.exe` which comes with standalone installer
 it points to `C:Windows\SysWOW64\python27.dll`. When I launch `python.exe`
 from `C:\OSGeo4W\bin` it points to the right dll file, ie.

 That will be because the OSGeo4W version has its python27.dll in the same
 directory as python.exe. The directory containing the EXE comes first,
 before the system directories; %PATH% comes last.
