Thank you for taking care of old python.
Kuwamura-san could give more detailed informations.
Actually one of my testing environment is a very old distro,
so I just fixed the version issue ad hoc to make xend boot.

I don't know about the xen official policy with python version.
I'm afraid that the document you referred isn't well-maintained.
