It would be nice if PyDev would work with Python 1.5 interpreter. The first problem the comes up would be easy to fix. When choosing my 1.5.2 python interpreter in the PyDev options, I get an error because sys.version_info does not exist in 1.5. Calling sys.version can be used instead as sys.version works in all version of Python. That is one problem that could easily be fixed. I'm not sure what other problems there might be after that.

    Well, I made that part pass, but there are still many details to sort out... I stopped on code-completion (which currently relies on the inspect module, that's not available in python 1.5), and there are certainly many other details to sort out (in code-completion and debugging).

    But at least right now you can already have it configured as a valid interpreter ;-)
