The little I know of Python 2.3, there are new syntax features (such as
iterators), so that means that any code that relies on some new feature
might cause problems. I don't know about the release policies of
Python, but if the minor releases, such as 2.2.3, are just fixes and no
new features, then for the sake of end users it would be good to always
update the main/core Python runtime. Same with wxWindows/wxPython. This
then of course puts more pressure on stable releases and no exceptions,
but I do think the open source movement is very professional with this
