As a tangential point, MPL is dropping support for python2.4 in it's
next major release.  As such we have put a lot of  effort in making
our upcoming point release extremely stable since it is likely to be
the last 2.4 release.  Our next major release, either designated 1.2
or 2.0 TBT) will have python3 support, and it seemed to much to try
and support python versions from 2.4 on up.
