At least for Python 2.7, I think that would be a nice and simple

That only applies to the version in Python 2.x. Python 2.3 is perhaps
a bit extreme and I'd be fine with bumping it to 2.4.

The main reason for keeping the compatibility is that the module is
also being used outside the stdlib for Python versions starting from
2.4 and later. I don't want to maintain two separate versions.
