Hi, no need for #ifdef's, as I said in an email to bf-python days ago:


... it's possible to link against 2.3 or 2.4 w/o any changes afaik. The 
difference will be that scripts written with 2.4 features will fail in 
Blenders using 2.3, but that's a minor issue imho. Script writers aware 
of and wanting to use newer features can easily solve problems when needed.
