As far as Debian is concerned yes, since oldstable has python 2.5 already.

Also, FYI, Debian Wheezy is planned to be freezed around the end of June, so
it would be nice if you could release the new ecasound version with some margin
(say, a month before the freeze) so that it can packaged, uploaded and tested
