It makes a lot of sense to do so, especially where people have to use
2.4.4 for some reason, but what it comes down to is someone with
the time and interest in doing the work.  And I have a lot of other things
ahead of on my Stackless todo list.  How worthwhile would doing this
be?  Are there that many people stuck on 2.4.4 who can't upgrade to
2.5 to whom this would be of benefit?

Will add it to the list.  Shouldn't be too much work.  And I need to move
the binaries so they are no longer downloaded from the Python SVN, I
think someone was sending me that message when they disallowed me
checking in any further versions of them :-)
