AFAIK installing multiple Python versions on Windows isn't a problem.
Plus, doesn't Zope 2 ship with its own Python anyways?

Tiger ships with Python 2.3.5. However, compiling Python 2.4 from source
is a piece of cake, let alone fink, darwinports or gentoo portage which
provide the same kind of packaging capabilities to OSX as they do to
Linux/Unix distributions. I haven't met a single developer who uses OSX
and doesn't use at least one of those. And there's also MacPython which
is a pointy-clicky installer for OSX; it's also available for Python
2.4, IIRC.
