[cctbxbb] Backwards compatibility; Python 2.3?

Does *anyone* actually use Python < 2.7 with CCTBX for anything other than kicking off bootstrap?

If not, then we could relax this back to using Python 2.7+ (which is a spritely 7 years old already) 

Thanks Graeme

So, the whole codebase supports 2.5, or just the bootstrapping part?
As far as I know, bootstrapping (and thus via 2.7) is the only documented way of installing? Are there any opportunities to switch over to bootstrapped python earlier in the process?

If it is the whole package, are there any automated tests with 2.5?
(If not, do we know that it's all still 2.5 compatible?)
