No. You'd have to recompile some modules.

Good question. Given that the startup file doesn't work on windows with
python 2.2 but will probably work with 2.3 (see
https://intevation.de/rt/webrt?serial_num=2241) I think that we should
build a Python 2.3 binary at least for the final release or the next
release candidate should there be one.

Having two python versions installed simultaneously should be possible.
