[mod_python] problem installing mod_python-3.1.3 with Python 2.4

The Windows installer for mod Python 3.1.3 is only for Python 2.3 - you 
can tell that because it's called mod_python-3.1.3.win32-py2.3.exe 

In general Python extensions written in C have to be compiled for the 
version of Python they are used with, so a new binary would be needed 
for 2.4

Anyone is welcome to try build this, I plan to myself when I get a 
chance. But simply using the existing installer won't work...
