Great :-) I'm happy to read that urwid is faster and faster at each 
release ;-)

I don't care to Python 2.1 nor Python 2.2. I'm using Python 2.4 and I will 
propably switch to Python 2.5 since both versions are available on Ubuntu 

Python 2.1 and 2.2 has been released in 2001.

Python 2.3 is 4 years old (released in 2003).
