Catch and name an exception in Python 2.5 +

In Python 3, you can catch an exception and bind it to a name with:
except ValueError, KeyError as error:
In Python 2.5, that is written:
except (ValueError, KeyError), error:
and the "as error" form gives a SyntaxError.
Python 2.6 and 2.7 accept either form.
Is there any way to catch an exception and bind it to a name which will work
across all Python versions from 2.5 onwards?
I'm pretty sure there isn't, but I thought I'd ask just in case.
