Older versions of Maya???

Wow, I just opened up the toolset in Maya2009 for the first time in a while and it's not good. There are a few issues that I wasn't aware of. The main AnimUI fails to open because I think there's some extra catches in the newer versions. I knew that none of the MetaData calls would work due to Python2.5 not shipping with the Json module so the question is, do I drop support for 2009/2010 completely or do I keep patching it? The UI call I can fix and there's already a catch in there to warn about lack of Json support. However, without Json the Scene Review will also fail as it relies on metaData to store the dict. Any comments? Red
