The folks who are still using 5 year old versions of python might
not be the most responsive. We'll probably hear some complaints
when some of the code breaks.

Yes, I'm running on 2.6 (and sad to be missing nested with
statements in my code). It would be great to have formal
Biopython/Galaxy interoperability. If I remember right, the biggest
complaint was lack of PEP 8 compliance with module names, but it
should be worth discussing.
