I really don't want to install python-2.4 rpms on the machine (even if
they don't update the 2.3/2.2 version). I just don't know if youtube-dl
really requires 2.4 or if that is just a packaging mistake. If it is, it
can be cleaned up, if it isn't, it should be dropped from the repository
for Distributions having python < 2.4.
