Targeting >= 2.6 would be preferable to me. Several other packages including IPython, support only Python >= 2.6, >= 3.2.
This change would help me from accidentally writing Python syntax which is allowable in 2.6 & 2.7 (but not in 2.4 or 2.5).
Compiling a newer Python interpreter isn't very hard… probably about as difficult as installing NumPy.
