This is obviously somewhat selfish, but I think it would be a shame if 
Zope 2 and Plone would lose the ability to use Grok code just as we're 
starting to get really excited about things like grokcore.component and 
martian (I plan to use it all over the place from now on...) and as 
we've started getting better and more serious about sharing code.

Of course, there are good reasons for Grok to move to Python 2.5, and I 
really hope all of Zope will be on 2.5 before too long, but right now, I 
think the ideal would be if Grok and Zope 3 could use either 2.4 or 2.5.
