The question is where I can reliably find the information on which python version is bundled with a certain Blender release (like 2.72b at the moment)?
I need to find the major and minor version numbers as soon as a new release is out (well, as soon as I begin using it, that is), in order to be able to compile external modules which work only with certain python versions.

This is no different to finding a regular Python installation version:
# sys.version_info(major=3, minor=4, micro=2, releaselevel='final', serial=0)

You can see the version also in the
Python Console (here: v3.4.1 64bit)

If you want this for previous Blender versions you can also check this at
https://svn.blender.org/svnroot/bf-blender/tags/ on a per-Blender-release basis by looking in the "lib/windows/python/lib" directory.

You can check the python version without opening blender as well. This is just another way of doing it.
In your python root directory go to:
you will find a file called
_init_.py. line 16 states the version numbers.
