though i'm not freestorm, at this point in time rhel6 (and its clones) are
getting pretty stable now. i'm a rhel5/6 user and given the choice if i
needed to run tahoe-lafs, i would be inclined to upgrade to the latest
stable of rhel6 and friends for maintainability reasons in the long run. if
i am desperate i would upgrade python and install the needed packages (or
use the sumo package).

just my two cents as a rhel5 (and compatible clone) user. mind you we still
have lots of rhel5 clones in work, so its hard to gauge.
