Is too restrictive and doesn't let you use newer version of jQuery.
For example if you use jQuery 1.5.2 from #1067290: Fix jQuery 1.7 for Drupal 6

Can it be modified to just require 1.3.2 or higher?

it will not work anyway. So this is by design. jquery ui 1.7 needs jquery 1.3 to work. and the current dialog implementation ( or rather D6 overall ) does not support jquery 1.8.x which support jq > 1.3.

So its rather not the question about jquery but ( and the regexp ) but rather jquery ui and its compatibility.

You can go foward and test jq 1.5x with 1.7 jq ui under D6, but i expect it to explode right away :)

Sir you are correct. It doesn't work.
Thanks for the headsup.

I think I'll try to get around my other issues that require jQuery > 1.3.2 in a better way and use 1.4.2 instead of that 1.5.2 jquery update port.

Marking as works as designed.

So is it feasible to ask for jQuery UI 1.8.x (and therefore jQuery > 1.3.2) support or will it require too much effort and won't be happening for D6?

Well test it, try it, patch it and iam happy to include it :) But until then, i just postpone it, reopen if you start working on it.
