  But when Linux 3.x goes stable, stable Python versions suddenly became  
"broken".
I don't think it's reasonable to have Python 2.4-2.6 in Portage tree  
keyworded stable (and therefore considered to be supported) and know for  
sure that it's just a matter of time when somebody have to recompile it  
and boom! half of Python modules stop working. I daresay these cases  
should be handled too.
