AFAIK installing multiple Python versions on Windows isn't a problem. Plus, doesn't Zope 2 ship with its own Python anyways? > I don't recall if OS X comes with Python 2.4 by default. 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.
