Install fails with Python 2.3
CherryPy 2.1 is supposed to be compatible with Python 2.3 as per http://www.cherrypy.org/file/tags/cherrypy-2.1.0-rc1/README.txt .
Install on a box with Python 2.3 fails with following error
byte-compiling /usr/lib/python2.3/site-packages/cherrypy/test/cp_decorator_tests.py to cp_decorator_tests.pyc File "/usr/lib/python2.3/site-packages/cherrypy/test/cp_decorator_tests.py", line 4 @cherrypy.expose("1") ^ SyntaxError: invalid syntax
Work-around: Delete file cherrypy/test/cp_decorator_tests.py before beginning install.
I hope cherrypy will continue supporting Python2.3. We have taken serious business decision to use CherryPy in our product and 2.3 compatibility was one of the assumptions based on Prerequisites mentioned at http://www.cherrypy.org/wiki/CherryPyInstall .
