Is this an application that you've written? If so, then I realize that
you can't just drop 2.4 in painlessly, but you really should consider
upgrading your software to use a newer Python. No one is going to
support MacPython 2.2.

It *is* uncommon. Judging from the traffic on the Pythonmac-SIG,
virtually no one is using MacPython 2.2 anymore. You can ask for help on
there, but I don't think you'll fare any better.
