Hi Mike

Fortunately, it is.

2.1 : http://ncmi.bcm.edu/ncmi/software/counter_222/software_129
2.07: http://ncmi.bcm.edu/ncmi/software/counter_222/software_122

It's all python code and it ships with its own python 2.7.x

I did have a look, unfortunately, my python-fu is weak. I do notice that 
the python version went from 2.7.2 -> 2.7.3.
