Well, that's an awfully dilligent due-dilligence there.

Yep. That would be a big problem. Zope 2.6 is "officially supported" on 
Python 2.1.3, and is said to work on Python 2.2. It may or may not deal 
well with Python 2.3a. I haven't heard one way or the other.

If you really want to try, you'll have to compile it yourself from 
source, using your python2.3. This may be more difficult on Windows, as 
it doesn't ship with a compiler.

Unless you have a very pressing reason to use that version of Python, my 
suggestion is to just forget about it. Even if you have something that 
uses Python 2.3 and 2.3 only, try to access it out of process, which is 
probably easier than working with Zope under an untested Python version.
