A few more arguments popped up since then, as I half expected, so I'll 
remove that decision and re-open the discussion for a while. I don't 
want to upset a whole lot of Plone folks.

I'll ask a different question to the Plone people. What is the date that 
you would feel comfortable about giving up Python 2.5 compatibility in 
Zope Toolkit packages? I'm not leaving this thread without at least 
*some* decision about this. :)
