I agree. However would it not be possible to (theoretically) have a
variant install extra files, so that something like
port install some-python-package +python2.5 +python2.4
would install files for both python2.4 and 2.5?
I'm not suggesting this as solution ... I don't think its very nice,
its more a question for my own understanding of macports.
