Unlike Fedora or RedHat, Debian does not require one particular version
of Python with any given version of the distribution - you don't have to
compile your own.

You should be able to "sudo aptitude install python2.5" and wind up with
/usr/bin/python2.5 along with /usr/bin/python2.4. If you're using the
Debian-packaged versions of Twisted, they should automatically be
available from Python 2.5 as well (no mucking around with installing
special python2.5-twisted packages).
