Can you please stop with this FUD? There are actually very few things
that broke between 2.4 and 2.5, 2.5 and 2.6 and 2.6 and 2.7 and most of
them already had a deprecation warning in the older version. The primary
reason why e.g. Zope can't be used with 2.5+ is the removal of the
sandbox feature since it never really worked.
