Definitely wrong forum for RestrictedPython-specifc questions, but not
if you consider those two paragraphs from Shane's email, which clarify
that Ranjith is seeking for information on possible AST changes that
might have occurred in Python 2.5:

The safety of RestrictedPython has been validated in a somewhat formal
process with Python 2.4.  Ranjith is working to validate it with
Python 2.5.  He is first working to discover all changes between
Python 2.4 and 2.5 that might have affected the safety of a
RestrictedPython sandbox. Any changes to the AST, builtin functions,
methods of builtin types, etc., need to be evaluated for safety.

So, in general, he is looking for detailed lists of changes between
Python 2.4 and 2.5--more than the "What's New" doc.
