We've been discussing dropping support in Twisted for versions of Python
prior to 2.1. There will be a number of limitation for people developing
Twisted itself, though not, of course for people *using* Twisted - the
coding standard will probably disallow list comprehensions, print>>, and
import X as Y.
On the plus side, 2.1 will allow use of new features such as weak
references, string object methods and so on. Additionaly, pyOpenSSL does
not run on Python 1.5.2. On the other hand, 2.1 is less commonly
installed than 1.5.2.
So, do any of you (users and developers) mind if 1.5.2 is no longer
supported? If so, this is the time to speak out and say so.
