Actually -- RHEL3 has python-2.2, RHEL4 has python-2.3, and  RHEL5 has
python-2.4.  RHEL6 is not out yet but it's based on Fedora (which is
currently on python-2.6) so it's very likely (but not assured) that it
will have python-2.6.

The supported lifetime of RHEL is given on this page (which JAM probably
already found for his explanation of the 7 year lifetime):

The important facts from the bottom of that page are that RHEL5 is
supported until March 31, 2014 and that RHEL6 isn't out yet.
