c. Remove the comment altogether, and replaced with some code
that does minimal version checking.
We don't seriously mean to imply that you can use a mailer.py that's
newer (at the granularity of any given public release) than the
libraries behind it. We provide mailer.py alongside our code in our
source releases, and we should encourage package maintainers to do the same.
So to me, options (b) or (c) are the only reasonable ones.
