Hello,

indeed the Python version is not the most recent one. And that answers
your question as well: No one is currently working on an update of this,
but we would be happy if you would look into that and send us the
patches.

Generally I don't see any problems you might expect. Please stick to the
latest version of Python 2.7 as most (if not all) python code that we
use in IPFire is not compatible with Python 3.x.

If there are any questions, feel free to consult us here on this list.
Arne already pointed you to where to start from.
