Unfortunately, I'm not able to upgrade the OS. Were I able to pick, I'd be
using a distro with debs.
I'm actually already running python2.6 in parallel (using the ActivePython
port). It's up and functional, I just don't know how to get RB to use
python2.6 now, instead of python2.4. ActivePython has a functional
easy_install but I forgot about wsgi. Thanks for the reminder. I'll have
to do some more digging.
