I find this pretty disturbing as it implies you *would* be running Zope 
2.10 on Python 2.5 or 2.6 without fixing RestrictedPython. Now, given 
that what you probably mean is that you want to run Plone on Python 2.6 
and given Plone's *heavy* reliance of RestrictedPython, this seems like 
a bad idea all round.

If you want to see Zope 2.10+ run on Python 2.5/2.6, then you'll need to 
do the job properly...
