bisect and Queue modules in Python 2.4

Dear All,

Python 2.4 (#1, Mar 22 2005, 21:42:42)
[GCC 3.3.5 20050117 (prerelease) (SUSE Linux)] on linux2
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
 >>> import Queue
 >>> q=Queue.Queue()
 >>> type(q.queue)
<type 'collections.deque'>

q.queue used to be a list, and now it is something else?

I was using bisect module to implement min priority queue, as described 
in python library reference (see I have found 
out that in Python 2.4 q.queue does not support "insert" anymore, which 
breaks bisect. Please help!

Thank you,
