I don't see a problem with dropping 2.5 support.  Python 2.6 was released in 
October 2008.  It's 2011 now.  Python 2.7 is out.  Many distributions are 
shipping Python 3 now.  Seriously...update already!

Apparently some people still build Mesa with python 2.5, but...I doubt 
anyone's doing active development on anything that old.
