  There're quite a few people developing for Python 2.5 (for other target  
platforms) using Gentoo. Just as I know one guy who programs for RedHat  
(with Python 2.4) using Gentoo ~amd64.
Though I'm not developer, I hold that there's no call to remove old Python  
versions from tree: declare them unsupported, or mask, but don't remove  
until it's too burdensome.
