Yea this is a problem if Irix wants to support 2.2 because the size of 
the TypeObject changed (it got bigger). Our BPy exensions will have 
invalid TypeObject sizes (some will be) without a #ifdef at the end of 
the struct. So if the irix platform manager wants older support we need 
to modify the TypeObject struct sizes a bit - just a minor dillio. 
Otherwise if 2.3 is the minor version supported it's no biggy. :)
