Issue description
At the moment synfig just calls "python" binary, without checking if it's python 2 or python 3. That leaves inconsistency gap - it isn't clear which version of python users should use to write their plugins (generally python 3 scripts are not compatible with python 2 scripts)

So, first, we have to define, which version of python we should go (python 3 vs python 2). Next, I need to add a code which will check if correct binary of python is used and displays warning otherwise.
