Hmm. Who wrote this page, and why? I would hope that a PEP has more
official status than a wiki page.

If you want to unsupport the system in 2.6, yes. You put something in
configure.in which users can't fail to notice, e.g. a single-line abort
that they need to uncomment before they can proceed. See earlier Python
releases for how this was done (I would have to dig myself to find out
what releases and what systems).
