Nah, keep 2.4 then. I'll survive.
Let's keep the mainline ipython 2.2-safe, though. That one is in real use out
there, so I don't want to break things for existing users. I've stuffed all
2.2 compatibility symbols in genutils.py, so put in there anything you need
which may be a backport from 2.3/4, if you touch ipython itself (this goes
especially to Tzanko).
