 the current python version shipped with osgeo4w is 2.5.

 the Orfeo Toolbox library dependencies are all fullfilled by OSGeo4w,
 except that the python version 2.5 is too old to compile the OTB-Wrapping
 project (http://hg.orfeo-toolbox.org/OTB-Wrapping/), which provides Python
 and Java wrappers for the library.

 Version 2.7 is known to work.
 Version 2.6 might be sufficient, but I would have to test.

 Can the python package be upgraded to a newer version ?
