Description

For example see gis/maps/google/gmap.py for the use of @property decorator. This is in the 1.0.1 release as well as trunk. Docs state compatibility with 2.3 in many places (example here). It would be trivial to rewrite these in the 2.3 syntax.

gis appears to require 2.4 or higher anyway.

Well, that FAQ entry perhaps could use a bit of revision since it says you lose nothing by installing Python 2.3, when in fact you do lose the ability to use contrib.gis.
