About 8 months ago I did a list of 5.3 modules not in 5.7. At the time, it
looked long, but functionality of many of the missing modules was already
offered in alternate ways. The biggest difference was in the import modules.
5.3 has many format specific modules while 5.7 has much of its import
covered under GDAL and OGR. Because of this, 5.7 will probably import more
formats currently in use than 5.3 in spite of lacking many 5.3 import

I haven't checked the list in a while but most or all of the remaining
modules have been ported. The last batch was a set of point
analysis/manipulation routines recently ported from 5.3 sites to 5.7

Given all the recent activity and impending release of 5.4 it is probably a
good time to review the functional differences between the two versions.
However, I think that 5.7 now all the functionality of 5.3 plus
functionality not in 5.3.
