It might be helpful if you can provide more information regarding your
application.
For example, does it use lot of 3rd party code, What is the reason
behind porting to latest version etc.
All said, 2.4 to 2.5 or even 2.6 should not be much of an issue - it
even has the advantage that performance is improved and some memory
leaks are no longer there.
Python 3* should be a problem since many 3rd party applications are
not yet ported to it.
