mkstemp is new in 2.3, which is over four years old. How many
people are upgrading to svn 1.5 while keeping a four-year-old
Python? Not that many. If we could at least move up to 2.2,
then we could use new-style classes for classes like
svn.delta.Editor and svn.ra.Callbacks .

I see dlr talking in another thread about bumping the
requirements for the Java binding.

I see no reason for the Python binding to be stuck in 2000.
