New submission from Stephen Bloch <sbloch at adelphi.edu>:

I'm on an old PPC machine with OS 10.4.  As far as I can tell, the latest
Mercurial version with a 10.4 distribution is 1.2.1, so I downloaded that
and tried to install it.  The installer complains that I don't have Python
2.5 installed, which is because I have Python 2.6.4 installed.  Do I need to
install an older Python [instead/as well]?

Or should I be installing a more recent Mercurial?
