Backward compability older Python versions

For various reasons it is difficult to support older versions of Python. 
Especially supporting 1.x is a pain with newer modules written in 
Python. Or there are some subtle changes regarding data types (long 
integers since 2.3 etc.).

Now the question is which versions of Python are still used by the 
python-ldap community and should be supported?

Personally I'd like to be drop support for any Python version earlier 
than 2.3. This would make it possible to use standard modules like sets 
and datetime which could make life easier.

Ciao, Michael.
