I am changing the severity to minor (see below why).

Thank you for reporting things.  This shouldn't happen.  The problem is
that in Python 2.4 this syntax is invalid, but it is valid in 2.5. 
However, Moovida should work just as well on Python 2.4.

If you start Moovida, the default Python intepreter is used, which
is of version 2.5.  So, this will only be a problem if you explicitly
try to run: python2.4 /usr/bin/moovida.
