Ken Giusti commented on PROTON-199:

To clarify the previous comment: I was able to install the necessary UUID 
libraries on my Centos 5.9 system by enabling the EPEL repo and installing the 
python-uuid package from that repo.

The previous patch only addresses the use of the new "bytes" type (an alias for 
'str') - the UUID issue is left unresolved (and thus not closing this bug).

To fix the UUID compatibility issue, I was planning on copying the method used 
in the QPID python sources - see qpid/python/qpid/datatypes.py

>                 Key: PROTON-199
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/PROTON-199
>             Project: Qpid Proton
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: proton-c
>    Affects Versions: 0.3
>         Environment: python versions < 2.5
>            Reporter: Ken Giusti
>            Priority: Minor
> Python bindings make use of (at least two) python language features that 
> require python versions newer than 2.5:
> - uuid
> - bytes
> In order to support older versions of the python language, these features 
> would have to be removed, or a compatibility layer would need to be provided.
