It would be nice, if you can please provide some more information:
especially the OS / Distribution (Version) you are using.  I looked
around but did not find any Linux distribution nowadays which still
comes with python2.3 - even Debian etch (which is known to be 'stable'
:-)  ) comes with python 2.4.4.

Looking though the xen-unstable tree I found at least two different
supported python version numbers:

   1. 'README' : ... Development install of Python v2.3 or later...
   2. './docs/src/user.tex': ... Development installation of Python v2.2
      or later ...

Are there any guidelines (written or unwritten) which python version to
support for new patches?
IMHO at least 2.4, 2.5 and 2.6 should be supported.
When interpreting the documentation literally also python 3 should work.
Must 2.3 and maybe even 2.2 be supported?

Is there some kind of roadmap saying e.g.: xen 3.6 will be the last
version which supports python 2.3? Or: starting from xen 4.0 python 3
will be supported?

The feature was removed from the repository because of another bug
report.  But before providing a corrected version, I want to be sure
that I'll get all aspects of the changes send in the meantime; 
especially here to test the feature with all supported python versions.

Kind regards
