I know upgrades are often painfully sucky... but hey, ardour 2
is the bleeding edge. We can't ask developers to work in ancient
environments forever. Current python is 2.4.2.  The sets module shipped
with Python 2.3.0 which is 2.5 years old already. 

If you're really stuck with a badly aging distro, Python
is trivial to install in /usr/local from source.
