This seems rather off-topic for python-dev.

FWIW, on Gentoo we're just now getting to dropping 2.4, so we'll
support 2.5 quite a bit longer. That's also the tendency I see from
the ecosystem, at least insofar as I notice. On the other hand, we've
had 2.7 as the default python on our stable branch since March 2011. I
also know Mercurial is still supporting 2.4 (they tend to be
conservative about dropping support for old releases).
