I suppose it has been long enough that all the python packages have
been updated from the old python2.4 directory ;)

You do know why we had the old search path in there, right?
Historically we've left it in there so that an upgrade from python 2.4
to python 2.5 wouldn't lose access to all the modules.  When we go
from 2.5 to 2.6 it'll probably be advisable to put it back in, at
least until all the python modules have been rebuilt for 2.6.
