Would be fine but as long as several distros contain brain-dead or castrated Python installations there is little we can do - even if we would support
to get their Plone site, it's a necessary evil evil evil. ;)
We generally encourage not to use the system Python in everything we ship (Windows, Mac and Unified installers all ship their own Python) — but I really hope we won't be stuck with Python 2.4 after the world has moved on to Python 2.5 and 2.6.
Bring the word to the Python packagers.
I agree that for proper deployments, you shouldn't use the system Python, but there's the case of letting people get started with Plone easily from their Ubuntu or Mac OS X (Leopard ships with Python 2.5 and easy_install by default) — we should be able to let them do that too.
See above. Stepping forward with Python 2.5/2.6 support would be fine but it basically does not solve the problem that system python installation are often broken. Installation a Python from the sources is usually much more faster than trying to figure out why a system python is broken once more.
