RuleDispatch (current SVN trunk version) currently works on Python 
2.5, as does the "simplegeneric" package on the Cheeseshop, and so 
does PEAK-Rules, for that matter.

By the way, in future, please direct inquiries like this via the PEAK 
mailing list, as I don't do private support except under 
contract.  (setuptools-related inquiries should go to the Distutils-SIG list.)
