Python 2.4 has been recently decided to be discontinued:

I find it too strict for GDB even myself, for example RHEL-5 with gcc-4.1
still should be able to build upstream GDB even in some restricted form (such
as without the Python mentioned above).
There are enough benefits even just with C++03. C++11 etc. extensions still
can be done incrementally in the future.
There should be first reviewed+accepted patchset, already posted at
[PATCH 00/18] -Wc++-compat patches v2.0
plus then sure many other patches you also suggest in the other mails.
