Just to chime in here, we have been working on the principle that ipython
0.11 would depend on Python 2.6 or later, and I've been 'modernising' the
code base a bit, to fit in with my Python 3 branch of ipython. I'm sorry if
this makes your life harder. Off the top of my head, though, I think most if
not all of my changes should be compatible with 2.5.
