Last year there was a GSoC project to port Zope 3 to Python 2.5, and I 
think overall this was successful. I don't know which versions of which 
packages (or SVN trunks or whatnot) apply, though. We should ask Nikhil 
N, he did the work and he should be able to give us a status overview.

I think the trick would be to use KGS's test running system to run the 
tests with Python 2.5, and see whether they pass. If the tests of all 
our dependent packages do pass, Grok should be in good shape.

I agree by the way we should make the move to python 2.5 sooner rather 
than later.
