Actually, four: 2.4 is also in sarge (maintained by you).

The count is already reduced by one, but I agree it'd be nice to drop
one more version from etch when the opportunity is there. At the moment
though, that'd still require python-defaults to migrate, along with
packages like abiword and gnucash. I'm disinclined to remove python2.3
from unstable just yet, because that might block a new revision of (for
example) abiword coming into etch via unstable.
