    Given your warning regarding compatibility with older python 
versions,  I tested locally before building in plague and they worked OK 
both on Centos 4 and Centos 5.
    I've built the newer versions in plague as soon as I have noticed 
that the "Fedora EPEL Package Build Report" did not list me in the 
Changelog , so all that is needed now is a push in order to have the 
correct name in place.
