That sounds great.  Thanks a lot, Dave and Bill.  So does it seem safe
to say, then, that folks on 2.3 can upgrade if it ever becomes
necessary to use one of the tools?

As for Python 2.4, I haven't been following the discussion as closely
since it seems to affect Chromium developers more.  Can someone
summarize the state of the discussion there -- does it seem like there
is a consensus?
