Probably not very hard but, why would you want to?
Do you have a need?
At work I am still using Python 2.1, and at home I
still use 2.2 on my Mac. I only moved to 2.3 on my
PC so that I could update my tutor, I am not knowingly
using any 2.3 specific features.
So unless you need something specific in 2.4 there
should be no reason to ruish to it, wait till a
safe point in your project - like after you get a
stable working release - and then upgrade at your

THere is usually a list available on the web site.

If you have a specifc advantage that makes the
advantage worth the risk then go ahead. Python
release changes are usually pretty easy and

Occasionally something might break but in most
cases(99%?) I'd expect the 2.3 stuff to just work.
