New submission from Skip Montanaro <skip at pobox.com>:
I was just poking around the distutils documentation and came across the
distutils.mwerkscompiler module. Surely that can't be useful anymore, can
it? The doc reads, in its entirety:
Contains MWerksCompiler, an implementation of the abstract CCompiler
class for MetroWerks CodeWarrior on the pre-Mac OS X Macintosh. Needs
work to support CW on Windows or Mac OS X.
So the only place it used to work was on pre-Mac OS X, which Python doesn't
support any longer and "will need work" for Windows or Mac OS X which
presumably nobody has done. This module should be deprecated in 3.1 and
removed in 3.2.
