> Is 1.8.0 not compatible with python 2.3?

Well, it SHOULD be. Problem is that no developer uses Py2.3 any more, so
such problems creep into the code.

>From the base64 module docs: """The modern interface, which was
introduced in Python 2.4, provides:"""

Gah. OK, I'll try to make something compatible that works with 2.3.

Thanks for the bug report.

BTW, as long term option, maybe think about a /usr/local/ or /opt python
2.5 install. If you use make altinstall that should be completely
painless and no-risk and won't touch the system python stuff.
"python" will still call the 2.3 stuff, but if code explicitely requests
python2.5, it'll get that.
