The current Debian "stable" branch (4.0r3, "etch", released
2008-02-17) has the 'python' package installing Python 2.4.4.

The current Debian "testing" branch ("lenny", the next in line for
release) has the 'python' package installing Python 2.4.5. It also has
Python 2.5.2, and before too long will be installing that as the
'python' package.

The current Debian "unstable" branch (never to be released, but a
staging area for new package versions) has the 'python' package
installing Python 2.5.2.
