[Mailman-Users] Preferred order for updating Python & Mailman? Was -- Re: Prepping for MM2.1

In the next week or two, I'd like to upgrade to current versions of both
Python and Mailman -- or maybe wait a little longer if that would mean MM
2.1 would be available. Now Python is 1.5.2, Mailman is, um, well,
1.0. Our main use of Python is for Mailman, but we do have a couple things
in Zope that we'd rather not break, given a choice.
Is there a better order for which one to update first and which after?
I've been assuming the right update order would be Python first, then
Mailman -- on some pretty vague reasoning having to do with Python
probably being a little trickier, and with avoiding re-installing Mailman
extra times. But BAW's reply below mentions warnings in a context that
sounds like issues between Py 2.1 and even slightly earlier MM. Is my very
early MM going to have an even harder time dealing with an up-to-date
Python? Does this argue for doing the following?
-- MM 2.05 now
-- Py 2.1
-- Re-compile / re-install MM 2.05 for that Py
-- At leisure come back to this for MM 2.1
Thanks for your advice,
