Moved to mailing list for broader discussion. Currently we have

Memory View objects were introduced in 2.7
Is our position therefor 2.7+ for Python? Or should this code be gated
for Python installations less than 2.7?
That specific issue as been fixed shortly after:
I have just tried building GDB against Python 2.6.9, seems to works find
(at least it builds, I didn't test it).
So far I don't think the effort to support Python 2.6 has been
disproportionate, so I think it's still worth it to support it.
