i don't think the rhel/centos world has changed much.

[timeless at konigsberg ~]$ lsb_release -d; python -V
Description:    CentOS release 5.5 (Final)
Python 2.4.3

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Red_Hat_Enterprise_Linux claims that
RHEL5 reaches EOL part 1 in 2014 and part 2 in 2017.

RHEL 6 is about 2 months old at this point. I can't predict when
groups will upgrade, but I think in general we expect to leave our
systems deployed for years w/o tinkering w/ core things.

I think you should plan to wait another 18 months or so before asking.
