Yes, but I'm sure we don't want to bother setting that up so close to the

Yes. But that's no big deal, isn't it? They can use a public hg hoster
like bitbucket, or we can have a facility on hg.python.org -- it doesn't

Thus spake the Lord: Thou shalt indent with four spaces. No more, no less.
Four shall be the number of spaces thou shalt indent, and the number of thy
indenting shall be four. Eight shalt thou not indent, nor either indent thou
two, excepting that thou then proceed to four. Tabs are right out.
