I'd say that *support* for Python 2.4 may be dropped, not
`dev-lang/python:2.4` itself. Mask it and declare "unsupported". When it
breaks itself (couldn't be compiled and no-one cares to write a patch),
drop it. There're Gentoo users writing in Python for old RedHat, which
would be supported till Py4k is out, so why drop what hasn't been broken
(yet)?

Good idea.
