Future Warning with win32com code

I finally got around to start testing some of my old apps with Python
2.3.  I've had no problems so far, but I did get one intriging
warning.  The following is from the Python Command Line:

Python 2.3c1 (#44, Jul 18 2003, 14:32:36) [MSC v.1200 32 bit (Intel)]
on win32
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
>>> import win32com.client
>>> ie=win32com.client.DispatchEx('InternetExplorer.Application.1')
>>> ie.Navigate('http://webserver/SomePage.asp')
>>> print ie.ReadyState
%u/%o/%x/%X of negative int will return a signed string in Python 2.4
and up
  debug_attr_print("Getting property Id 0x%x from OLE object" %


The code works well, as can be seen by the returned result.  But what
I want to know is what needs to be done to avoid any problems in the
future, with 2.4.  Should I submit this to the Win32 extensions
project?  Or is it so obvious that it will undoubtedly by resolved and
I shouldn't worry about it?
