It's not just python, it's all the modules as well.
In the end the issue isn't so much ipa-client as all the related
dependencies. The ipa-client package just helps configure things, sssd
does all the heavy lifting. If you wanted to backport anything I'd start
there, and it is likely extremely non-trivial.
I know that people still use RHEL-5 and the current 2.2-based client.
It, and its related packages, generally works fine you just miss out on
some of the newer features, particularly in sssd (like sudo and autofs).
