The current build is based on Python 2.3. I've finally had some 
nights to work on a b4 release in the last few weeks, and I 
am tentatively planning to base that on 2.4 (or make a release 
for each - its much less painful to do that now). Hopefully 
I can post that in the next few days.

At any rate, 2.4 does appear to work fine (in that all the 
unit tests pass and all the demos run).

If you're feeling lucky, you can go into your windows/system32
directory and make a *copy* of python24.dll named python23.dll. 

The DllImports look up the dll by name, so that might fake them
out and get you running on 2.4 in the meantime. Don't do that 
if you actually have 2.3 installed, of course ;)
