I'd say the error was in selecting something other that the lowest
common subset of python functions when designing and writing a python
version dependent Mongrel2. There are certainly ways (and perhaps
compatibility libraries as well) to write python at a 2.4 (or 2.2) level
to sidestep installation issues related to python versions. Targeting a
wide range of installation platforms without taking that into account is
the problem. When you issue a 2.5 dependent version and find it easier
to convert it all to C rather than write the (relatively minor) python
fixes, it speaks to the level of python competency as well.
What if I wrote a 64bit app and complained that in 32bit environments it
didn't do the right thing?
