Unlike full Splunk, the universal forwarder does not include a bundled version of Python.

OK, so just to recap:

universalforwarder (splunkforwarder) does not include python.

Splunk (full version) with LWF or HF enabled does include python.

Nope. This was a design decision for the 'universal forwarder' to not include python.

LWF HF and indexer do include python.
Not the UF.
