As far as I know, no. But:

(2, 3, 0, 'final', 0)
>>> (2, 4, 0) > sys.version_info
>>> (2, 2, 0) > sys.version_info
So you can create one yourself quite easily.
if sys.version_info < version:
raise OSError, "This program requires Python v%s or later" %
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "<stdin>", line 1, in ?
File "<stdin>", line 3, in require
OSError: This program requires Python v2.4.1 or later
I'm not really sure what exception I should raise, though -- OSError
is the most appropriate, but not exactly the Right Thing... Oh, well.
