Thanks for the heads up.

It's clearly a priority to get it working on python 2.5, but the whole
deal seems to be a regression for python 2.5 rather than an indication
for a need to "fix" ipython. I.e. there's something badly wrong w/
python 2.5 if it breaks lots of stuff (w/o "from __future__ import
blah blah", or deprecationwarnings), and knowing that it flies against
the traditional conservative evolution b/w python versions, one would
expect that future betas of python 2.5 will work better.
