Ok, so I should forget Python2.5... My only problem is that I run some
jobs on a cluster which (until now) only know Python 2.5 (or 2.4 !)
but I may manage soon to have Python2.6 on these machines.
I will check the source of the Python interface tomorrow to see how difficult it would be to backport these changes to Python 2.5. @foo.setter is a nice touch that I really liked in Python 2.6; maybe there is an easy workaround to keep these changes while still supporting Python 2.5.

The question in fact is more about Python3 adoption... what is it plan
for igraph ?
As of version 0.6, the Python interface of igraph will support Python 3.x, but Python 2.x support will not be dropped at all. I myself have not adopted Python 3.x so far and it is unlikely that I will do so in the near future (due to lack of Py3.x support for NumPy/SciPy and many other packages I use). So, these are for sure:

igraph 0.6 will support Python 3.1 and above
igraph 0.6 will support Python 2.6 and above
igraph 0.6 MAY support Python 2.5 if I find it easy enough to backport my recent changes to Python 2.6
