Python 2.5 isn't supported by Zope 2.12 either (it is by ZTK 1.0 and
1.1). In fact there's no currently supported Zope 2 release that
supports Python 2.5 (apart from the volunteer security support for
2.11/2.10 by some community members). And it's not only missing
support claims, the code just doesn't work anymore in all cases.

In all the hosting environments where we use Debian, we installed
backports of Python 2.6. That's the price you pay for using a very
stable distro for fast moving web stuff.
