Okee dokee. I just cvsed a new loci-file which doesn't use os.makedirs(),
but instead 2 separate calls to os.mkdir(), which should be a pretty old
lib function and available on lots of older pythons. Let me know if there
is more that is 1.5.2 specific.

It is up to everyone. 1.5.2 has been around since April 99, and has been
ported just about everywhere (even the Mac!) so I don't think it would be
that hard for people to upgrade. But we should make it compatible with
older versions of python where possible, and this is definately somewhere
where is was easily possible.
	Hopefully it works for you now :)
