Because upgrading to a higher Python micro release is always
backwards-compatible. Even with existing third-party extension modules
that you have installed.
Going from 2.4.x to 2.5.x normally means you have to recompile all your
extension modules written in C. Or download and install them, if they
have binaries for your platform.
