Python 2.5 is in maintenance mode.  Python 2.4 is past that, though it may
receive critical security fixes during the life of Python 2.5.  Last
October, after the release of Python 2.5 and the "final" maintenance
release of Python 2.4, to cover a security flaw Python 2.3.6 was released
with that flaw and a couple of other minor bug-fixes.  Somthing like this
could happen for Python 2.4 after the release of Python 2.6 and after the
release of Fedora 8, but very little will be fixed in such a release.
Thus, nearly every bug report against a Python-compat 2.4 would be marked
"won't fix".
