Sidnei fixed the 3.6.1 tag locally to build on Python 2.4. The fix 
hasn't made it into a release yet. So far I didn't want to create a 
release because I'm puzzled by the problem myself: 3.5.6 builds on Python 2.4 perfectly without Sidnei's 
fix. However, 3.6.x will only build on Python 2.4 
*with* Sidnei's fix (which is available from trunk). Regarding their C 
code, the two branches seem to be identical as far as I can tell (for 
instance, compare 3.5.6 to 3.6.1). That's why I'm a bit puzzled. Perhaps 
somebody else can shed light on this.

Of course, if everybody's just annoyed and wants to move on, I'll be 
happy to create another 3.6.2 release with Sidnei's fix in it.

Right. I uploaded an sdist and Sidnei uploaded two binary eggs for 
Windows. Where's the problem?
