site.py makes use of sys.maxsize which is not available in python 2.5

@pnasrat

We should support 2.5 adding as release blocker

@qwcode

@pfmoore , @pnasrat :

sys.maxsize was added 4 months ago:
0da2c50 (by @dnozay)

we have had a few releases since adding this, should this be a release blocker?

@qwcode

see here: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/1405913/how-do-i-determine-if-my-python-shell-is-executing-in-32bit-or-64bit-mode

they mention this as a cross-platform/cross-version solution for detecting 64bit

$ python-32 -c 'import struct;print( 8 * struct.calcsize("P"))'
32
$ python-64 -c 'import struct;print( 8 * struct.calcsize("P"))'
64

addressed in pull #393
