Failing gracefully when installed Python is too old?

I can't figure out a way for a Python program to fail
gracefully if somebody attempts to run it with a version of
Python that's too old.
Checking sys.hexversion at runtime won't work because the
program might not even parse. For example, attempting to run
a program containing list comprehensions under 1.5.2.
Is there any way to check the version at compile time?
