Seems like I want a pre-processor, but...

Ah... sorry about that. I should have checked my example more closely.
What I'm actually doing is rebinding some Queue.Queue behaviour in a
"safe" location like this:
ret = self.queue.popleft()
And self.queue.popleft() used to be self.queue.pop(0). self.queue is a
deque object in 2.4 so I just used transferred that unluckily to the
post in a poor attempt to simplify it - I had no clue that it was new.
Should have made one up from scratch.
Anyway - it worked... you've answered my question perfectly, thanks. I
hadn't considered that the module loading phase could basically used
for preprocessing. You even helped by subtly providing a better
version checker... I didn't even know you could use < with a tuple like
that. I'll have to look into the logic rules there.
