It looks like no one has come forward to maintain 2.4 support.
So, we will only support Python 2.5 & 2.6 for BlueBream 1.0 release.

I hope some of you already migrated from Zope 3.4 to newer
packages.  If you have taken any notes while doing it,
can you please send it to me.  That would be useful
to create "What's new in 1.0"  document. If you planning
to migrate any existing app from 3.4, please take note and send it to me.
I have already added few notes (taken from zopetoolkit) here:
This is very important for 1.0 release.
