 I know 2.5 is a stable release; my point is that this needlessly raises
 the bar to build GNOME: anyone is free to build GNOME with whatever
 version of libc6, gcc, or python that one wants to catch some bugs (in
 GNOME or in these projects), but imposing the python version to be so
 high by default seems a gratuitous change.  3 out of 5 Ubuntu releases
 do not have Python 2.5 by default, no Debian release has it and the
 next one wont have it.
