2.5 :(

if sys.version[0:3] < '2.5':
    raise ImportError('Python Version 2.5 or above is required for IPython.')



Sorry, but 2.4 is getting way too long in the tooth, and for us the
only realistic way to think about 3.x compatibility is to start
ditching the older versions.  We simply don't have the manpower to
maintain a codebase from 2.4 to 3.1...
