So, so save you a bit of work, I went ahead and looked into this.

There is only one major problem with running mock 0.8.x on EL4, and that
is decorators. I use the new decorator syntax to instrument most
functions for logging and that decorator syntax is not available on
python 2.3 in EL4.

There is a way to modify the code to keep the functionality of the
decorators and still have backwards compatibility, but it isnt too
pretty. (Not that, bad, either...).

If you want to send me a patch, I would accept it, as long as it is
