Minimum Python requirement for autogen.sh?

The attached patch makes autogen.sh support Python 3. However, it
increases the minimal Python requirement from 2.5 to 2.6 for people who
run autogen.sh or build on Windows. The minimum Python required for
'make check' on Unix is unaffected and remains 2.5.

Python 2.6 was released in 2008, aka, when Subversion 1.5.2 was current.

Okay to bump the minimum?

Daniel

P.S. I didn't test with Python 2.6 since I didn't have a copy handy, but
I tested with 2.7 and confirmed via Python's online docs that the
requisite syntax and library interfaces had been introduced in 2.6.
