Philip Harvey commented on PROTON-199:

I notice that v2.4 was released in 2004 whereas v2.5 was released in 2006 
(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_Python#Version_release_dates).  Most 
production systems I've seen are running on 2.6 or 2.7.  

All of this makes me think that v2.5 would be a reasonable minimum version.

However, I'm not a serious Python developer so you should take me views on this 
with a pinch of salt.

> 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.
