One more comment :
I was only asking for the use of the '//' operator, which is "at
least" backwards compatible to Python 2.2  -- I don't know the exact
version when it was introduced....
Are you saying that 1.5.2 did not know about it and you "need" to
support those ?

(I'm asking because in the mathematical community using true-division
behavior is quite beneficial, even for Python 2.x )
