We have a large code base which needs to be migrated, and we will probably
go to 2.5, we just dont have the
manpower to do it now. Ipython isn't critical where I work, I'm the only one
using it. I will run it in a VM where I already have 2.5 installed, but this
will be just for learning, not everyday use.

Although, I would suspect there are probably not many people out there using
2.3 these days ;-)
