Use the newest Python and Zope you can get away with; at this time of
writing that is Python 2.4.x and Zope 2.9.x. They are both well-proven and
stable releases at this point.
Plone 3.0 will require Zope 2.10, but still run on Python 2.4.x. Upgrading
Python is usually the painful part - Zope and Plone upgrades are trivial
(but migration of heavily customized sites can be harder - this is a
separate concern, though).
