As Guido highlights in his sides (linked from his blog),  the Python 2.6 
series has a flag (-3) to help porting.  So I would suggest that Python 
2.6 compatibility would be an first intermediate step . I have the 
suspicion that some of the 'small' changes are going to be very 
important and hard to track down without checking that is works in 
Python 2.6.
