They are going to ask around, and somebody will know.
Most reasonably, they are going to ask the maker of the module they
are trying to install, and say "Hey your module doesn't work with
Python 2.6.3. And that module guy will ask the python list. And the
python list will know.

People are not isolated. Information will reach them.
