Arguments like this will neither solve the problem, nor take this
decision any further. All that people (not some 'single user') are

Given the fact that Python 2.4 has been around for so long and that it
had generated only 12 bug reports for FC6, I do not see how providing
a compat-python package is so big a problem. I do not see how a
/usr/bin/python2.4 will cause such a huge number of confusing bug
reports, since a newbie (who does not know about python &
compat-python) will simply use 'python' and not hunt for 'python24' in
the distribution in the first place.
