I think the maintainer is Mark Hammond.  I doubt he cares about 1.5.2
compatibility though.

Can you elaborate?  Can't you include the last version of
modulefinder.py that supports 1.5.2 in your py2exe distro?  Or run
py2exe with a 1.5.2 python?  It seems to me that modulefinder.py
depends on the dis.py module of the current Python -- how can you use
a modulefinder.py from Python 2.x for a Python 1.5.2 program?
