Stricly speaking, when numpy says it supports all python starting at 
2.3, this does not mean we have to provide binaries for all versions. It 
means that the code itself is compatible.

That being said, the posted installer was just a test version. We will 
do just as before, that is provide a separate installer for python 2.3, 
2.4 and 2.5.
