NumPy 1.5.x still aims to support Python >= 2.4. I don't know what the plans are for dropping 2.4 support, but I don't think 2.5 would be dropped until some time after official support for 2.4 is phased out.
I'm confused how having an exact hex representation of a float would help with doctests, though. It seems like it would exacerbate platform issues. One thought is to include a 'print' and explicit format specifier, which (I think?) is fairly consistent across platforms... or is this what you mean to say you're already doing?
