Really? In my experience dropping 2.4 support allows you to use the with
statement (just as dropping 2.3 support allows you to use decorators) which
is a big change. I've found the 2.5-2.6 changes to be much less dramatic.
I have to jump through hoops a little bit to test context managers in a code
base that remains 2.4 compatible (you can *write* context managers and
remain 2.4 compatible - just not use them).

May you do good and not evil
May you find forgiveness for yourself and forgive others
May you share freely, never taking more than you give.
