    Python 3 isn't ready for prime time on web servers.  Too many major modules,
haven't been ported yet.  Twisted and Django are now available up to Python 2.6; 
MySQLdb is available only up to Python 2.5.  So the basics for web work aren't
ready yet.

    Python 2.5 is more or less the "stable" version of Python for production
use at the moment.  2.6 is a transition version to 3.0.
