The port was originally contributed by Octavian Cerna (sf:tavyc),
in bugs.python.org/488073. He did that because the version of Python
that came with AtheOS was 1.5.2.

It took some effort to integrate this for 2.3, so I feel sad that this
is now all ripped out again. I'm not certain the code gets cleaner
that way - just smaller. Perhaps I should just reject patches that
port Python to minor platforms in the future, as the chance is high
that the original contributor won't keep it up-to-date, and nobody else
will, either, for several years.
