So in other words are you asking us should you use Python now (2.5) or 
wait months before you start using it (2.6+)? That doesn't make much sense.

How hard is it to just start using the latest version? It's not like you 
will have to learn a new language when 2.6 is released, or even 3.0.

If you had asked whether you should use 2.5 or *older* versions, that 
would have made more sense. Your question as it is confuses me.
