The question in my mind is this: how much do we back-patch to cover new and incompatible releases of software we depend on? Python 2.5 was released on 19 Sept 2006, long after Postgres 8.1. I guess you could make a case to say that we should back-patch to the release immediately before the library change.

I guess that depends on the invasiveness - in this case it's a couple of simple updates to the regression tests so I think it's probably worth doing.

(BTW, it is possible to include python only in certain branches in your buildfarm client - examples are in the config file).

Yeah, I already use that functionality to handle the features that we've added over past releases to the windows port (ldap, thread safety etc). Handy :-)
