I believe this is a case of not working with older
versions of Python. Do you know what version of Python BBEdit is using
here? (I don't use BBEdit so I'm not sure if it is using the system
Python or its own private build of Python.

I've started an issue for this:

If you could add your Python version as a comment on that issue, that
would be great. Following up via email if fine too, tho.
