WSH Scripting Engines?

I have the latest versions of ActivePython and ActivePerl installed on Windows XP Pro SP2 with VBP 5.7. VBP shows JScript, VBScript and PerlScript as Language options on a Run Script step, but not Python. However, Python scripts work properly when I run then with cscript.exe or wscript.exe, so the Python engine seems to be registered correctly with WSH. I'd really like to use a Python script in my build process. Has anyone done this successfully?

The language combos are pre-populated with JScript, VBScript, and PerlScript, but you can enter any registered Windows Script engine's ProgId in those fields. I haven't used ActivePython, but its ProgId is probably PythonScript or Python.
