The most serious problem with Zope 2.3.x on Python 2.0 that I have
discovered so far is that Zope's xml-formatted export doesnt handle
unicode objects. If you find anything that doesnt work, it will have
to be fixed for Zope 2.4, and it shouldnt be too hard to back-port
that fix into 2.3.x.

Having said that, Python's garbage collector *needs* support from
container objects. Acquisition wrappers dont implement this support
(yet), and therefore I suspect a Python upgrade will not help you with
this memory leak problem.
