[pylucene-dev] Is Python 2.4 *required*

With python < 2.4, your mileage will vary.
When using threading, deadlocks are a possibility around PyGILState_Ensure.
This also leads to a leak in finalizeObject() in PyLucene.i.
I've added code preventing these from happening but it disables threading and
it disables freeing of wrapped python objects, hence it causes a leak.
I could try python 2.3.5 once it is released to relax this requirement a bit
but I'm pretty sure the threading fix that was made last September is not part
of python 2.3.4. PyLucene with python < 2.3 was never even tested.
It is highly recommended you use python 2.4 with PyLucene.
