[Bf-committers] Python 3.3?

FindPythonLibsUnix.cmake uses PYTHON_VERSION, this can be set to 3.3
and it will find python 3.3

I've been using python3.3 since early alphas with blender and it works
well _except_ for a bug with imp.reload(),

Pressing F8 shows the problem.

Since Py3.3 didnt release yet, I didnt spend a lot of time trying to
fix it, but I think to properly resolve the problem we should switch
to using import hooks which is a bigger project and not some simple
