dual python / bootstrap RPM woes

Greetings.

In an effort to get python2.4 on my Centos 3.7, I installed the python
bootstrap rpm. This installed 2.4 alongside 2.2 and updated yum to 2.4.0.

Oddly, it didn't create a symlink 'python' for either 2.2 or 2.4. I also
get a series of troubling dependency errors when I run yum update. Below is
the output of the bootstrap install, which includes both a failure early on
(possibly related to alternatives and/or the symlink?) and the yum update
dependency errors towards the end. Beyond this, everything appears to be
running (including fail2ban, which was my original driving force behind
getting 2.4 installed).

Any thoughts are greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Hello all, I have a few questions about the best way to organize a large Python program.

Is it proper to break the program up into modules and put all of the modules in a package even if...
