You also have to be careful with this blocker, never unmerge python or
you are lost as portage does not work without python. You have to do
something like this to get around it.
>> quickpkg =dev-lang/python-2.3.5
this makes a backup of your old python version in case something gets
wrong (adapt the version to match your currently installed one)
>> emerge --nodeps -avt =dev-lang/python-2.4.4-r6
installs the new python version without dependencies so the
python-updater can not block the old python version
>> emerge -avC =dev-lang/python-2.3.5
removes the old version of python
>> emerge -avt python-updater
>> emerge -avt portage
reinstalls portage so it uses the new python version
It is also good thing to run python-updater after this.
Please could someone confirm this, as i have never done this myself,

You should also consider this! There are some invalid entries in your
world file. Normally this are packages which are in world but are not
installed on the system.
