Since the Python development team tries hard to maintain backwards 
compatibility, the vast majority of Python packages will automatically support 
the newest release of Python in that they will work just dandy. Developers don't 
really have plans to do that kind of support since it just happens.

If you mean something else by "support" (like making use of new language or 
standard library features), then what do you mean?

I would suggest, in order:

1) Look on the relevant mailing list for people talking about using ZODB with 
Python 2.5.

2) Just try it. Install Python 2.5 alongside 2.4, install ZODB, run the test suite.
