[Tutor] Checking for Python version

I am using the following code to check for the Python version -

import os

t = os.sys.version_info[0:2]
if (t[0] + t[1]) < 6:
    os.sys.exit("Need at least Python 2.4")
del t

This snippet is put at the beginning of the single script file before
the rest of the code.
I need to check for the minimum specific version because I am using
the "@staticmethod"

Is there a prettier way or is this fine?
