> this will break the support of IceApe on Debian Etch

Is Python committed to supporting obsolete Debian releases? The latest oldstable Debian release (6.0 Squeeze) has iceape-2.0.11 [1], which does seem to support the -new-window and -new-tab options (I haven't actually tested this, though - I just looked at the source code [2]).

The iceweasel/iceape products are just rebranded versions of Firefox and Seamonkey. The webbrowser module currently supports them via the generic Mozilla class - so Python should only be concerned about which versions of the common Mozilla codebase it needs to continue support for.
