Btw. I just updated the Zope2 KGS over the weekend again at
http://svn.zope.org/*checkout*/Zope/trunk/versions.cfg

It contains the latest released version of everything Zope2 depends on
at least. So it should be a good base for deciding what exactly the Zope
Toolkit is.

As others mentioned as long as there's no good compelling reason to drop
support for a Python version I'd rather not do it.

Andreas mentioned the policy for Zope 2.12: It ain't officially
supported, but we won't break it without a good reason.

The Plone policy is:

For 3.x is: stuck with Python 2.4
For 4.0: We require Python 2.6 and won't even support 2.5. But Plone 4.0
is future-ware that will be released sometime next year.
