I released a package a few months ago which was 2.6+ . One of the first people to try it out reported that it didn't work on his 2.5 installation.

I've decided to support Python 2.5 for at least the next year. In my case that's only a few "from __future__ with" statements and an unfortunate problem that a gzip file-like object doesn't have a "name" attribute.
