tag 575186 patch
retitle 575186 Isn't compatible with Python 2.4, but still attempts to byte-compile for it.

Some users are likely to still have it on their systems.

I recommend you either set XS-Python-Version: >= 2.5 in debian/control or
$ echo 2.5- > debian/pyversions

Otherwise these people will continue to see this error whenever they
install a Python package or remove python2.4.
