I support a lot of python on several platforms.  For broad  
compatibility with pre-installed Python versions on recent OS  
versions, Python 2.3 support is essentially mandatory and there are  
few good reasons to not support it.  I occasionally see Python 2.2 on  
really old systems by default, but it takes significantly more effort  
to support versions that old; the solution in my case is to upgrade  
Python to 2.3 or 2.4.

Python 2.5 may be the current "stable" version, but vanilla source  
builds segfault on some Python code that runs fine in 2.3 and 2.4,  
strongly suggesting that it is not mature enough that I would put it  
anywhere near anything important (like a database).
