In this case I probably wouldn't file a bug as it involves python-2.4 and that 
is gone from sid and squeeze.

Quoting the manpage:

If you want to test that a package installs properly in the stable (currently 
lenny) Debian release, then can be upgraded to the testing (currently 
squeeze) and unstable (sid) versions, and then uninstalled without problems, 
you would give the following command:

piuparts -a -d lenny -d squeeze -d sid foo

I dont bother filing bugs in lenny anymore (unless severe ones). If you can 
reproduce it in sid, great! (Then I'd file..)
